Lewis plays for Polten U18s and at South Shields Academy he is involved in the FA Youth Challenge Cup. He describes the Sports Development Centre as enjoyable, professional and competitive.
“The Sport Development Centre played a huge part in my application to Sunderland College as it helped me to decide what I wanted to do.
I enjoy the environment around the college and also love being part of the full-time football programme.
The sports facilities at college are of a very high standard. The Sport Development Centre will help me develop as an athlete as well as a footballer because of the facilities they offer.
The best thing about the Sport Development Centre is the gym and the strength and conditioning coaching, which can massively help to improve a player.
I would recommend Sunderland College to other people that are looking to be part of a good environment that strives in sport.”
Lewis plans to play football at a professional level.
