Lewis profiled by Big Ten Network

ANDERSON, Ind. — There isn't much need for Anderson product Troy Lewis to have a humbling experience.

The former Indians Mr. Basketball already possesses one of the smallest egos of any player to graduate from one of this area's high schools. But a recent experience would certainly have done the trick anyway.

The Big Ten Network picked Lewis as the topic of its program Forever B1G. The episode will air Friday at 7:30 p.m.

"They followed me around for a couple of days. It was like being on a reality show," said Lewis. Part of that included tagging along as he went to Springboro High School where he is the boys varsity assistant basketball coach. It was there that he discovered that fame perhaps doesn't always age well.

"I had to get all of the kids to sign releases to be on the show and one of the kids said, 'Oh, is this a show about Maverick?'" said Lewis. Maverick is Maverick Morgan, who graduated from Springboro and is a freshman on the Illinois University team.

"I told him that no, the network was doing a profile of me," said Lewis. "He said, 'I didn't know you were that famous.' Those things will keep me grounded."

But that grounding has been a lifelong process.

"I had two older brothers that could kick my butt," said Lewis. "I was shocked they were doing a program about me. I never saw myself in that light. I never played in the pros like Brad Sellers or Irving Fryer."

Besides just following him around on his work days as a sales representative for Victory Wholesale Group, they also used old photos from his playing days and taped some interviews with him.

Seconds later, a laser-like pass arrived just past his shoulder, and he had a free run to the end zone. A crowd of 7,540 erupted inside Macholtz Stadium, adding a unique energy to the lone evening practice of this year's training camp.
