W&L’s Lewis makes NN Sports’ Wall of Fame

20130417wm1

Washington & Lee High School Athletic Director Malcolm Lewis has been inducted into the Northern Neck Sports Wall of Fame. Lewis, a popular former varsity football coach at W&L, was inducted at a weekend ceremony at Dreamfields in Kilmarnock.


“It is a tremendous honor and it just makes me reflect on the people who helped along the way,” Lewis said after the ceremony. “There were great players and assistant coaches who helped get it done on the field, and the sacrifices of my family.”

 “You can’t live a coach’s life without your family living it with you. They didn’t simply tolerate the lifestyle, but embraced it and really became a part of it.” Lewis is married to his W&L High School sweetheart, Patricia, and they have two sons, Landon and Evan, who currently attend VirginiaTech.

 Lewis participated in three state championships at W&L: As a player in 1979, as an assistant coach in 1993 and as a head coach in 2001. The 1993 and 2001 W&L teams won the state championships. Lewis compiled a 123-58 record as the Eagles’ football coach. He has been W&L’s athletic director for nine years.

 “You are the sum of your experiences,” said the longtime football coach. “I hope that every person who played even the smallest part in my life can be proud of what we have done. This is a community award.”

 “When I think back on the influential people in my life: My mother, my father, my large family, my High School Coach, Dean East, my apprenticeship with Coach Bill Garbett in Middlesex; it was just the perfect storm of skill-building for the job. I think every successful coach has a similar story,” Lewis said.

 Also inducted were Ellen Gaines, Varsity Softball and Girls’ Basketball Coach at Rappahannock High School, and Leon Douglas, retired Minor League Baseball Player.
Both Gaines and Douglas reside in Warsaw.

Gaines has coached at Rappahannock for twenty-seven years. A former college player at VCU, she led Rappahannock’s varsity girls to two Northern Neck championships and two regional championships. She won eleven district titles and six regional championships as Softball Coach.

Douglas, who was raised in Callao, played high school baseball at Northumberland. He was signed by the Milwaukee Braves, and played third base and outfielder on several minor league teams. In 1961, his minor league batting average was .347. He had ten homeruns and thirty RBIs, and was named to the Minor League All-Star Team.
