It turns out that we have two #35’s on the roster, as the second to last player to talk about is a walk-on freshman running back from Fishers.

Henry Lewis - Fr.

Fishers, IN (Fishers HS)

5’10”, 190 pounds

Running Back

2020 Projection: Likely redshirt

Lew is not here for just football, which makes him an interesting prospect. He is also listed as being a member of the track and field team, joining the speedy Marcellus Moore as a double sport athlete. His Twitter bio even lists him as primarily a track and field athlete, not a football player.

As a senior in 2019 for Fishers he finished 17th in the state in the 200 meters at the state meet. He also was on the 11th place 4x400 meter relay team. He then graduated and apparently has already been at Purdue for a year.

For football I found he rushed for 557 yards and 4 touchdowns his senior season, but that only lists 7 games of the 11 they played.
