Kaiwan Lewis playing for South Carolina

Kaiwan Lewis (8), a 2012 graduate of St. Joseph High School who is from Pleasantville, is making plays in his first season as a starting linebacker for the nationally ranked University of South Carolina. ‘He wants to learn. He wants to do things the right way, and he wants to be a leader,’ Gamecocks linebackers coach Kirk Botkin said Sunday. ‘He has everything you want in a football player. I can’t say enough about him.’

Here's a quick look at some local college football players and where you can watch them on TV this weekend.
