Default ASK THE STEELERS – KEENAN LEWIS – PART 1

Steelers.com brings you the Ask the Steelers feature. Fans submitted the questions that were asked. Please understand that we receive an incredible number of questions for each player, with many of the questions being similar, and not all of the questions can be answered. We selected as many as possible, and took your questions to the current subject to get your answers.


From Paul Jefferson in New York: What was draft day like for you, waiting for the phone to ring?
Keenan Lewis: It very intense and nerve-racking, just trying to figure out what team was going to give me an opportunity to play for their organization. I was just waiting around for my name to be called. I knew it was going to be called. I was praying it would be called. When Pittsburgh called it was a good opportunity and feeling to play for Coach (Mike) Tomlin and his staff.

From Rita Lloyd in Pennsylvania: What was your first reaction when you learned you were going to be the newest Pittsburgh Steeler?
Keenan Lewis: I knew I was going to a great organization. They just came off a Super Bowl year and they are always contenders in the playoffs and things like that. I knew I would be learning from some of the great players they have here in the organization. It was a blessing for me.

From Mark James in Ohio: What was it like to see the six Super Bowl trophies for the first time?
Keenan Lewis: That made me so anxious to get another one. Hopefully I can contribute and help us get another one.

From Larry Bower in Florida: Is there more pressure coming to a Super Bowl champion or less because you don’t have to be a savior?
Keenan Lewis: There is definitely more pressure because the intensity and the bar is set high. These guys work every day like champions. When it is like that it puts pressure on you to perform.

From Gene Mowry in New Jersey: What was it like right after mini-camp, was you mind spinning?
Keenan Lewis: It was definitely spinning. Just learning the playbook, coming from a college system with different terminology is tough. But I think I got the hang of it. It’s gone pretty good.

From George Reynolds in Pennsylvania: How valuable are the OTA’s?
Keenan Lewis: They are very valuable. It’s right before training camp so getting to know the calls and different defenses. It helps so when the preseason and training camp come around you can show everybody your true talent and not be out there like mini-camp.

From Jeff Tallon in Colorado: What is some of the advice the veterans have given you?
Keenan Lewis: They tell me to stay hungry. I have to go out and give it all I have got every opportunity. Any opportunity could be your last.

I am excited to see Keenan Lewis in some dime packages this season. I have no dillusions that he will somehow vault ahead of guys like Taylor, Townsend, Gay...this season. But, I can honestly see him being the #3 CB or higher in 2010.

I have some high hopes for him as well and like you said he will probably be a big contributor in 2010.
