|Title:||Assistant Coach (Running Backs)|
Jemar Lewis enters his first season as an assistant with the N.C. Wesleyan football program and will coach running backs. A product of Heidelberg University, Lewis joins the Battling Bishops after serving in a similar capacity at his alma mater the past two seasons.
As a Heidelberg graduate assistant, Lewis guided the Student Prince backfield, as well as assisted with special teams, video coordination and recruiting. He worked within an offense that has been ranked in the Top 15 nationally in scoring and total yardage the past two years, helping develop a trio of All-Conference selections and a pair of All-Americans along the way.
Prior to his move to the sidelines, Lewis enjoyed a solid career in the backfield for Heidelberg, which culminated with First Team OAC All-Conference honors as a senior. That season, he led the team in scoring with nine touchdowns and a team-best 807 rushing yards. Overall, the Bedford, Ohio native earned three postseason honors during his career.
Lewis received his B.A. in Sports Management in 2011 and completed his M.A. in Education this past spring. He will now reside in Rocky Mount.
