Pro path

Calgary signed Lewis as a free agent on May 19, 2004.

2013

Lewis started seven games and recorded 32 catches for 400 yards and three touchdowns. On Aug. 9 he moved into the 12th spot on the CFL all-time receiving yards list. He holds a Stamps record with catches in 164 consecutive games played. Lewis suffered a broken fibula during the Aug. 17 in BC and was placed on the nine-game injury list.

2012

In his ninth CFL season, Lewis started 17 regular-season games as well as all three post-season contests and was named a West Division and CFL all-star. He led the CFL with a career-best 100 catches and was also tops on the Red and White with 1,241 yards and 10 touchdowns receptions. His receiving yards ranked him fourth best in the league. Lewis became just the fourth player in franchise history to record a 100-catch season as he joined a group that includes Allen Pitts, David Sapunjis and Ken-Yon Rambo. On July 19, he scored three touchdowns — including the OT winner — to help the Stamps rally for a win over Saskatchewan. Lewis led the CFL with 34 receptions on second-down conversions and ranked fourth with 559 yards after the catch. He caught at least one pass in every game he played and his streak now stands at 157 games overall. During the season, Lewis surpassed 12 players to climb into 13th place on the CFL’s all-time list for receiving yards and he also moved into the league’s all-time top 10 in catches. He recorded his 700th career catch and surpassed the 10,000 career yards receiving mark on the same play on Sept. 14 against Winnipeg. He is only the second player in Stampeders history, joining Allen Pitts, to reach the10,000-yard mark. In the post-season, Lewis totalled 11 receptions for 132 yards.

2011

A year after setting a new career high in catches, Lewis again improved that mark with a 93-reception campaign. He also climbed the franchise’s all-time receiving charts as he moved into second place in team history in both receptions (636) and receiving yards (9,232). Lewis scored his 50th career touchdown on Sept. 5 in the Labour Day Classic against Edmonton and also extended his team record for consecutive games with a catch to 140, a mark that spans his entire eight-year career. With 93 catches for 1,209 yards and five touchdowns, Lewis earned his second consecutive CFL all-star team berth, his fourth West Division all-star nod and was the Stampeders’ nominee for the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player award. It was his eighth straight season with at least 1,000 yards. He had at least three catches in every game including a season-high of eight in the Touchdown Atlantic contest against Hamilton on Sept. 25 in Moncton. Lewis had three 100-yard games — on July 8 against BC, on July 23 against Edmonton and on Aug. 27 against Montreal. He had two touchdown receptions of more than 60 yards including a 62-yarder on a Hail Mary play in the final play before halftime on Sept. 9 in Edmonton. He played all 18 regular-season games as well as the West Division semifinal.

2010

In his seventh campaign, Lewis established a new career high with 90 receptions despite being forced to miss one game because of injury. His 1,262 receiving yards led the team and he earned West Division all-star honours for the third time in his career and his first CFL all-star nod. He passed three players to move into third place on the Stamps’ all-time receiving list with 543 catches. He surpassed the 8,000-yard mark in career receiving yards on Nov. 5 in Winnipeg, joining Allen Pitts and Tom Forzani as the only Calgary players to accomplish the feat. Lewis was second on the team with nine touchdown receptions and he caught at least one pass in all 17 games he played, extending his franchise record for consecutive contests with a reception to 122. He also extended his franchise mark with his seventh consecutive 1,000-yard season. His three 100-yard games during the season raised his career total to 22, tying Travis Moore for second place in Stampeders history. He joined Pitts as the only Calgary receivers to make 50 receptions in seven straight seasons. Lewis recorded a pair of two-touchdown games — on Aug. 15 against Edmonton and on Oct. 22 against BC. On July 31 against Winnipeg, Lewis tied a career high with 10 receptions and amassed a season-best 160 yards in that game. Lewis added six catches for 55 yards in the West final.

2009

In his sixth season, Lewis extended a number of Stampeders marks and made headway on a number of other club records. With 70 catches for 1,013 yards and one touchdown, Lewis recorded his sixth consecutive 1,000-yard receiving campaign to extend his club record. In addition, he stretched his consecutive-games-played-with-a-catch streak past the century mark to 105 games. Lewis rose from seventh to sixth in receptions with 453 and from seventh to fourth in receiving yards with 6,761. Lewis is one of four current CFL players to record 50 or more receptions in six consecutive seasons. He was named CFL Offensive Player of the Week for his Week 9 effort against Toronto with a five-reception, 118-yard game. His devastating block of Argos linebacker Zeke Moreno in that game made numerous highlight reels. Lewis had two other 100-yard games during the regular season — Aug. 13 at Edmonton (seven catches for 132 yards) and Oct. 17 against Saskatchewan (eight catches for 112 yards). On Oct. 3 against Hamilton, Lewis played in his 100th game as a Stampeder and in the CFL. He also put together an impressive game in the West semifinal on Nov. 15 against Edmonton as he made seven receptions for 100 yards.

2008

Lewis started every game, including the West Final and Grey Cup. His 87 receptions also represented a career-high. He tied his career best for longest reception with an 85-yard grab on Oct. 10. With 10 majors, Lewis hit the double-digit mark for touchdown grabs in a season for the first time. Lewis became the first Stamps receiver, since Travis Moore in 2002, to notch back-to-back multi-touchdown reception games. He had a career-high 10 receptions in a regular-season game on two occasions in 2008 — against Toronto Sept. 20 and against Winnipeg Oct. 18. Lewis became the first Stamp to post five consecutive 1,000 yard receiving seasons. In addition, Lewis has caught at least one pass in 88 consecutive games in which he has appeared, breaking Allen Pitts’ mark of 85 on Oct. 18 against Winnipeg.

2007

In his fourth season with the Stamps, Lewis tied for the team lead with 67 receptions and his 1,101 receiving yards ranked second on the team. He had receptions in all 16 games he played and grabbed a season-high eight passes on Aug. 17 against the BC Lions. Lewis eclipsed the 100-yard receiving mark four times, including a season-high 149 yards on five receptions against Saskatchewan on Sept. 15. His 85-yard reception for a touchdown in the contest was the longest by a Calgary receiver in 2007. Lewis added two receptions for 19 yards in the West Division Semi-Final at Saskatchewan on Nov. 11.
