Rick Teverbaugh: Lewis put down good foundation

The first family for Anderson High School basketball, if not for all AHS athletics, to me has always been the Lewis family.

When it came to quality basketball players, it is difficult to top Kendrick, Scott and Troy. Each was a different kind of player and each was a very good player. Rico also became one of the favorites of Wigwam crowds with his contributions to the pre-game festivities.

But what will stick with me just as long is that they were just as good or even better as people. I will always count myself fortunate to have seen them play and gotten to know them personally.

There's very little doubt that a huge influence on the people the Lewis boys blossomed into was their mother Julia. It was with great sadness that I this week learned of her passing.

Her contributions to this city went far beyond helping to populate it with outstanding sons. She had a big heart and extended it to those who needed it. She was always such a joyous and positive person each and every time I was fortunate enough to be in her company.

Having lost my own mother less than two months ago, I have some fresh memories of what the loss must be like for all of her family and friends.

Hopefully it won't be long before the memories of all the good moments will overwhelm the sadness of the loss. My heart goes out to her family as they make their way through this tragedy. I wish them nothing but the best in the future and am confident they will come out of it as strong or stronger than ever because that's the way Julia raised them.

Last week I believed I was going to have a Sunday column. In that column I was going to tell about the Hoosier Legends series that Brian Hammons is doing for Fox Sports Indiana.

    There's a different kind of buzz surrounding the Indianapolis Colts as they prepare to report for training camp today at Anderson University. Expectations have been high inside the locker room since Chuck Pagano arrived in January 2012 and promised shortly thereafter to "Build the Monster." Two 11-win seasons and one playoff victory later, the mantra has changed.
