Lewis was introduced as the new football coach this morning at the school. He takes over for Shannon Burcham who took the principal's job last month.
Lewis is a Trigg County graduate who has served as an assistant coach in the program for several years. He was Burcham's offensive coordinator when the two were at Madisonville in 2006 and has been the Wildcat OC the past four seasons.
He said he has been planning and running the practices since Burcham stepped down two weeks ago, and expects the transition to be a smooth one.
Lewis' first official practice as head coach will be tonight as part of the annual Black/White game at Perdue Field at 7pm.
Full comments from Coach Lewis can be heard on the Saturday Morning Sports Report at 8:15am on WKDZ 106.5 FM.
Trigg County opens their season Aug. 19 against Russellville.
