Lewis a two-time co-captain of the Owls, has also been a two-time first team NE-10 offensive guard as a standout in the Southern offensive line, which allowed just 18 sacks this season and helped the Owls set season marks for total yards (5,728); passing yards (3,094); points (507); and touchdowns (71). He was a second team Daktronics selection in the offensive line. Lewis has significantly played a vital role in the Owls' offensive attack throughout his career. During his tenure, Derrick has been one of the major reasons as to why Southern was atop the NE-10 standings in rushing offense and total offense for the 2004 and 2005 campaign. The Owls were also second in scoring offense and third in passing offense in 2004 among Northeast-10 schools.

"He's a very modest guy who likes to help people," Southern Connecticut coach Rich Cavanaugh said. "He's not a big ‘me' guy. He is a nice person, but don't let that fool you because he is a damn good football player."
"I think he has the size and physical ability (to play professionally)," said, current NFL offensive lineman Joe Andruzzi. "Someone will probably take a look at the guy, when all is said and done. How do you not?"
Big powerful player, dedicated, agile.
