Defensive back Aaron Lewis was a four-time UAA First-Team selection, UAA Rookie of the Year, a two-time D3football.com All-American, two-time ESPN The Magazine First Team Academic All-America, two-time Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Southwest Football All-Star and a member of the D3football.com All-Decade Team. Lewis was named a finalist for the Draddy Trophy, now named the William V. Campbell Trophy, which recognizes an individual as the top scholar-athlete in the nation. Lewis played a huge role in the Tartans’ 2006 undefeated regular season, as the team advanced to the second round of the Division III playoffs after winning its first playoff game since 1979. Lewis will go down as one of the best defensive players in Carnegie Mellon history after leading the team in tackles four consecutive seasons. He ended his career as the school’s all-time leader in total tackles (358), solo tackles (186), assisted tackles (172) and interceptions (15). Lewis also holds the single-season record with 115 tackles, which he set in 2005.
