Bowling Green Freshman WR Roger Lewis To Start Friday vs. WKU

The Bowling Green Falcons bring back 12 starters from a team that went 10-4 and won the MAC Championship, but they did lose several key recurring targets, including their top two targets to graduation, and Chris Gallon to another season-ending injury. That's created plenty of opportunities for younger receivers in Dino Babers' system.

A quick look at the Falcons' two-deep for their Friday game reveals that freshman wideout Roger Lewis is one of four starting wide receivers, joining Ronnie Moore, Gehrig Dieter and Heath Jackson. Lewis was a highly-touted prospect coming out Pickerington Central in 2012. He was ranked four stars, and originally committed to Ohio State during his senior season, before eventually flipping to Ohio as personal legal issues popped up.

After going to trial for rape, and being found not guilty, Lewis is getting his football career back on track and it appears his talent is where it was a few years back for him to be starting in this deep receiving corps as a true freshman. With an offense that will likely run 80 or more plays a game, Lewis could see a lot of action this fall.
