Derrick Lewis Coaching at Archbishop Spalding

My personal knowledge of Maryland basketball doesn't extend back to the 80's, but CoachGaryWilliams.com remembers Derrick Lewis (1985-88) and found a news story about him. (Never mind the inconsistency that Lewis never played for Williams.)

Lewis is currently the president of ArchivaSports (a video service for high school athletes), and will now become the JV coach and assistant Varsity coach at Archbishop Spalding High School in Severn, MD. PressBox.com has a detailed bio story about Lewis from his AAU days P.G. County to his long professional career in Europe:
The newest addition to the Baltimore Catholic League coaching fraternity is one of the most underrated but finest players in Maryland basketball history. He's also the president of a company, a father of two, fluent in French and a former roommate of Len Bias. He has played professionally for 16 years and visited 38 different countries.

"Sometimes I wonder where the time has gone," Derrick Lewis said. "I have been very lucky."

Derrick has been a class act since I first met him after getting a triple-double at JMU in '87 to "running" (haha) in a HCRP rec game. Great guy who treats EVERYONE as a friend with respect and affection.

Derrick Lewis was one of the best shot-blockers for his size in college basketball history!

Lewis was a good player but I bet Lenny Bias gave him nightmares in practice. LOL
