Byron Kline of Devils Digest has written a very inspiring article about ASU running back Deantre Lewis. The article chronicles Lewis’ recovery from an accidental gunshot injury suffered after the 2010 season:
“As a freshman in 2010, Lewis delighted Sun Devil fans with his electric playmaking ability. He appeared in 11 of the team’s games, including two starts, and rushed for 539 yards. His 987 all-purpose yards that year were second on the team and he finished the year averaging just less than six yards per rushing attempt and more than 16 yards per reception.
Arizona State fans couldn’t help but dream of the heights the Sun Devils could reach with Lewis leading the charge in 2011 and beyond.
But everything changed on that February morning when Lewis became the victim of a random shooting incident while visiting family members in his hometown of Riverside, CA. Everything except his desire to get back out on the football field for ASU once again, that is.”
Azcentral.com’s Doug Haller has previewed the Sun Devils’ upcoming schedule, including this Saturday’s big game against the Wisconsin Badgers:
“Wisconsin is the start of a difficult four-game stretch for ASU. After the Badgers, the Sun Devils visit No. 5 Stanford. From there, they host No. 25 USC before traveling to Arlington, Texas, to face No. 14 Notre Dame.
Since Wisconsin and Stanford both feature power-rushing attacks, ASU has worked on its rushing defense since spring practice. Last season, the Sun Devils allowed 182.8 rushing yards per game, 10th in the Pac-12.”
