No. 3 Roger Lewis

Much like last week’s opponent Richmond, Bowling Green boasts a pair of very talented wide receivers. Roger Lewis is a speedster that was depended on quite a bit as a freshman in 2014. Lewis caught 73 passes for 1,093 yards and seven touchdowns. He was the first Falcon wideout to earn All-MAC First Team honors in 32 years. Lewis also became the first Bowling Green receiver to record a 1,000-yard season as a true freshman.

Lewis is the real deal, plain and simple. He is a deep threat that can get behind the secondary in the blink of an eye. However, Lewis is capable of making tough grabs in traffic. The Ohio native has great hands and can go up and get the football, despite barely being 6’0. Usually players of Lewis’ size are just deep threats and don’t have much of an intermediate game. The sophomore wideout is definitely a player that the Terps may need to provide safety help in order to slow down.
