Lewis was a two-time NCAA runner-up at Minnesota, compiling an 83-15 record in his Gophers career. The Vernal, Utah posted one of the best seasons in Minnesota history as a junior in 2001-02 when he held a .970 winning percentage at 32-1 and was a perfect 14-0 in duals and 8-0 in the Big Ten. That year, Lewis captured the Big Ten title and earned the 2002 Big Ten Wrestler of the Year award after he downed Ohio State's Jeff Ratliff, 5-2, in the final. Lewis would add the first of two-straight All-America honors to his list of accomplishments for the 2001-02 season.
Lewis, the 2000 University Nationals Freestyle Champion, ended his college career with a 102-17 record after transferring to Minnesota from North Dakota State after his freshman year.
