Former N.O. Saints Player Michael Lewis To Visit Lafayette Parish
This Sunday, former New Orleans Saints player Michael Lewis will be signing autographs and taking pictures with fans Sunday at Ranch Outlet off I-49 at Gloria Switch.
Lewis is most known as the beer truck driver turned pro. In 2002, Lewis set an NFL record for combined kick-punt return yardage with 2,432 yards total (1,807 kickoff, 625 punt). He is currently the Saints' all-time career leader in punt returns (142) and punt return yardage (1,482). Lewis eventually took a position as a "Team Ambassador" for the Saints. Although no longer playing, Lewis was awarded a Super Bowl Ring after the Saints won Super Bowl XLIV in recognition of his continuing role with the team.
The event is free and open to the public. It will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
