Sea Gulls football: New quarterback Brandon Lewis at the helm

The Salisbury University football team will go as far as quarterback Brandon Lewis takes it — at least that’s what head coach Sherman Wood believes as his team approaches the 2017 season.

Lewis has spent the majority of his college career on the bench, watching and learning from former Sea Gull quarterbacks like Joey Jones, John Dunbar and Ryan Jones.

But with all three now graduated, Lewis has finally been handed the keys to the Sea Gulls’ offense, and with just one season to make his mark, the Bel Air native intends to make his time on the gridiron a memorable and successful one.

“I like the pressure. I feel like I perform better under pressure, and I just have to rely on my teammates, and I feel we’ll have a great season this year,” Lewis said. “I just want to bring energy every day; I just try to bring everybody up and stay as positive as I can.”

Coming off an 8-3 season that ended with a blowout victory over Carnegie Mellon in the ECAC Legacy Bowl, Lewis and the Sea Gulls are determined to build off last season’s success.

Salisbury has traditionally been a squad that loves to run the option, using multiple slotbacks, a super back and a mobile quarterback to advance the ball down the field.

Although he’s mainly played the backup role during his time with the maroon and gold, Lewis has proven he can be an asset in both the running and passing game.

In 11 games played last season, Lewis tallied 394 yards and six scores on the ground, while tossing three touchdowns and throwing just one interception.

“He’s had all summer to know that he’s the No. 1 guy, and he took full advantage of that — we go as Brandon Lewis goes,” Wood said. “Brandon’s going to provide versatility. He’s probably the quickest quarterback we’ve had since we’ve been here, so that speed of the game is going to be better.”

As he continues to settle in under center, Lewis will have a level of familiarity with who’s backing him up — figuratively and literally.
