Photoshop Phriday: Jourdan Lewis
Here is a snippet from an actual conversation I overheard in my office this week: “How did the football game go last weekend?”…”It was great, another shutout!”…”Really? Didn’t they do that last week?”
Yes, for the third week in a row the Michigan defense did not yield a single point and the rest of the team was firing on all cylinders. I was out of town for a wedding and left the hotel shortly after watching Jehu Chesson return the opening kickoff for a touchdown. By the time I drove the 3 miles to the venue, Michigan had scored again! Myself and the other Michigan alums in attendance were frequently checking our phones during dinner as the final seconds ticked away and Michigan preserved another shutout.
Jourdan Lewis, a junior cornerback from Detroit, was a key contributor to Michigan’s point total and defensive performance. Lewis had four tackles against Northwestern and one completely baffling interception that was returned for a touchdown. With Northwestern pinned against their own endzone Lewis somehow came up with a deep pass that looked to be caught by the Northwestern receiver. Before anyone could realize what happened, he ran it back for a touchdown that ran Michigan’s lead to 28-0 before halftime. Lewis and the Michigan defense will be back at it tomorrow afternoon against Michigan State. With the 3:30 kickoff Lewis should have enough time to make a big batch of almond flour pancakes for the rest of his teammates (Photo credit Bryan Fuller).
