One future Kentucky Wildcat shined on the biggest stage in Alabama high school football. Unfortunately, Christian Lewis’ Pleasant Grove High School came up short in the state championship for the second consecutive season.

The wide receiver showed off his explosiveness at Bryant-Denny Stadium, scoring a 76-yard touchdown in the first minute of the second half to give Pleasant Grove a 21-10 lead in the Class 5A title game. It was Lewis’ second touchdown of the day, scoring on a first quarter slant by stretching the ball just past the end line.

After Lewis opened the second half with a score, the Spartans hardly touched the ball for the rest of the game. St. Paul’s ran 30 more second half plays, allowing Pleasant Grove to possess the ball for only 4:08. In that short amount of time they turned it over three times.

Lewis hauled in six receptions for 145 yards and two touchdowns in the 29-21 state title defeat.

A four-star recruit according to 247 Sports, Lewis is one of the top-rated players in Kentucky’s 2021 recruiting class. Recruited by Jon Sumrall, the Wildcats will have to fend off eleventh hour efforts by Ole Miss and Texas A&M to secure a signature Dec. 16.

    OMG… typical horrible high school referees… that jack-azz marked him down at the one yard line. When it was obvious the ball crossed the plane of the end zone before his knee touched down… just awfull!!
