Lewis Named to All-IFL Team

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, Wash--

Every time Thyron Lewis caught a pass this season, it seemed like he was standing in the end zone.

That's because he was half of the time he was.

Lewis caught 50 passes for the Tri-Cities Fever during the regular season, 25 of them were for touchdowns. His efficiency and reliability was recognized Thursday when he was named to the Indoor Football League second-team as a receiver.

Lewis, in his first full season with the Fever, led the team in all most every receiving category, including those 25 touchdown catches, ranking him fourth in the league.

Lewis finished the regular season with 50 catches for 675 yards, and is a big reason why the Fever is in the playoffs.

Lewis and his teammates take on the defending IFL champion Billings Outlaws (12-2) this Sunday at 2 p.m. in Billings in the first round of the IFL playoffs. It's the Fever's (7-7) first playoff appearance since 2007.

Lewis had a touchdown catch in 11 of the Fever's 13 games this season. In nine games, he had at least two touchdown catches. His best game of the season came in a 55-49 loss to Kent on March 27 when he had seven receptions for 170 yards and four TDs.
