The 3-0 Cleveland Storm is one of the best high school football teams in the state of New Mexico. A big reason for their success in this 2018 season so far is transfer, Dorian Lewis. The junior running back is from Andress High School in El Paso, Texas.
Dorian was a starter on varsity since his freshman season and last year racked up nearly 1,400 rushing yards in El Paso. He is now a part of the Cleveland Storm, and Head Coach Heath Ridenour has been very impressed with Lewis.
“Dorian is the complete package, he is. He catches the ball so well and his football IQ is just off the charts. You tell him one time and he just gets it, but he does fit with every one of those division 1 athletes that we have had,” said Heath Ridenour.
Dorian has been a major producer for the Storm in their three wins, and most recently put up nearly 400 yards and had five touchdowns against Eldorado.
He is a very athletic back that has big-play capabilities, but the biggest thing that stands out to Coach Heath Ridenour about Dorian is his patience.
“He can be almost at a standstill, where you feel like you have to be on him like run hit the hole, and all of a sudden as quick as lightning he is in the hole, makes a big play,” said Ridenour.
