Looking to Kap it off right

Former ‘Roo hopes to end collegiate career a champion


“It was hard to contain my emotions when I saw him running across the field headed toward me,” Lewis told Moore. “Just last year, he was hobbling with crutches underneath his arms.”

Lewis-Moore said his mother is the main reason he chose to play at Notre Dame.

“She, being a teacher, knew the importance of academics,” Lewis-Moore said. “At first I didn’t understand, but now that I’ve graduated, I know she was right.”

Wanna Lewis said her proudest moment came when her son earned his degree last May.

“That was my happy ending,” she said. “That’s all I asked him to do. I wouldn’t mind if he took his education further, but that’s on him. My wish now is to see him go for whatever dream and whatever purpose that God may have for him.”

Kap won’t be the only former ‘Roo taking the field for the Fighting Irish Monday night.
