Lewis rushes for 252 yards, winning score as Lake Mary Prep (10-0) nips Orangewood

Lake Mary Prep beats Orangewood Christian 19-16

Lake Mary Prep senior Ray Lewis III carried the ball a career-high 41 times for 252 yards while playing nearly every down on defense and special teams Friday at Orangewood Christian.

His final rush of a grueling afternoon was his shortest but sweetest gain. The son of All-Pro linebacker Ray Lewis scored from inside the 1-yard line on a fourth and goal play with 21.8 seconds to go to give the Griffins a 19-16 win at Orangewood Christian (6-4) and a 10-0 regular season.

"I'm definitely not a one-man team, but I knew the guys were depending on me,'' Lewis said. "I had to bring it home for my team.

Orangewood got 20 tackles from sophomore linebacker Jimmy Martin and led most of the way after Daniel Ebert blocked a punt, scooped the ball and scored from 72 yards out. Lewis returned a punt 67 yards to set up his first of two TDs to give LMP a 12-10 advantage late in the third quarter.

The Rams went back ahead after Martin intercepted a tipped pass and returned the ball 18 yards to the 9-yard line. That set up a B.J. Welch TD run with 7:48 remaining. Lewis started the Griffins' game-winning drive with a 29-yard kick return, then had runs to convert two fourth downs and a broken-play scramble for 15 on a third-and-11.
