Barcelona Dragons sign former Seahawks QB Levi Lewis

The Barcelona Dragons are making moves! With Levi Lewis, the Spanish franchise has secured Ragin’ Cajuns star Levi Lewis for the 2024 season.

Lewis attended Scotlandville Magnet High School in Bato Rouge, Louisiana. After throwing scoring a total of 33 touchdowns as a senior, the three-star recruit committed to play football at the University of Louisiana Lafayette.

Beating NFL stars 

The talented freshman appeared in four games as a freshman and in 14 as a sophomore, before having his breakout season in his junior year. Lewis threw for more than 3000 yards and 26 touchdowns with only four interceptions, leading the Ragin’ Cajuns to the Lending Tree Bowl, which his team won 27-17, netting him the game’s MVP award. 

With Lewis at the helm, the Ragin’ Cajuns beat a ranked Iowa State team that featured New York Jets RB Breece Hall and Super Bowl Runner-up Brock Purdy 31-14. They ended the season 10-1, winning the First Responder Bowl and finishing the year ranked #16 in the country. 

Making history

As a fifth-year senior, Lewis and Louisiana were once again a dominating force in the Sun Belt Conference, with their only loss coming to the Texans Longhorns in Week 1. From Week 2 on, the Ragin’ Cajuns went on a 13-0 run, winning the Sun Belt Championship and New Orleans Bowl. In 2021, Lewis threw for 2,647 yards and 20 touchdowns, breaking the university's all-time passing touchdown record, which was previously held by Carolina Panthers legend Jake Delhomme. Lewis also won the Bowl Game MVP award, thanks to his fourth-quarter heroics. 

Lewis ended his collegiate career with 9203 passing yards (2nd most in school history), a record 74 passing touchdowns, two All-Conference selections, a conference championship, three Bowl game wins, and two Bowl MVPs. 

Despite his successful college career, Lewis was not selected in the 2022 NFL Draft but later signed by the Seattle Seahawks. After not making an NFL roster in 2022, the Louisiana great spent one season with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the CFL, before now making his way to Europe.
