The post-season honors keep on rolling in for Carnegie Mellon University junior defensive back Aaron Lewis. This time he was named to the 2005 All-America Team.

Lewis, a second-team All-America selection, had a stellar year for the Tartans. He led the team and University Athletic Association (UAA) with 115 tackles (61 solos) and ranked second in the UAA with six interceptions. He recorded more than 10 tackles in a game six times this year, including a career-high 22 stops against Thiel College in the season-finale.

For his efforts, Lewis, 6-0, 210, garnered All-UAA honors for the third straight year and was named All-ECAC Division III Southwest. He was named UAA Defensive Player of the Week four times and was voted the ECAC's top defensive player of the week twice.

An outstanding student, Lewis was also recently named to the ESPN the Magazine Academic All-America Team by the College Sports Information Directors of America. He is a business administration major with a 3.95 grade-point average. Also earning Academic All-America honors was senior offensive guard Bryan LeBude, a biological sciences major with a 3.75 GPA.

Lewis is a native of Englewood, Ohio, and a graduate of Northmont High School.

Carnegie Mellon, under Head Coach Rich Lackner, finished the 2005 campaign with a 5-5 overall record and a third-place standing in the UAA. It was the 31st consecutive non-losing season for the Tartans.
