Congrats, Zeiko!

The Boston College Varsity Club presented its 2017 Golden Eagle Awards on Friday, May 5, honoring the performances of the university's student-athletes over the 2016-17 season.

The winner of the Men's Eagle of the Year award for 2017 was New York Red Bulls' Zeiko Lewis.

Lewis is BC's all-time leader in career assists (27) - thanks mostly to a remarkable freshman year of assist-making when he picked up 11 and the ACC's Freshman of the Year award.

He was awarded a contract with MLS before the 2017 SuperDraft, meaning he had been identified by the league as one of this year's crop of pro-curious players from NCAA that it wanted to tie to the domestic professional game. Lewis was drafted 17th overall by the New York Red Bulls - a little lower than expected, as he pointed out to the Draft Day audience.

RBNY has loaned Lewis to its reserve team in USL for the 2017 season. The Bermudian national-teamer has quickly established himself as a starting-caliber player at that level, making six appearances in NYRB II's first seven games and scoring one goal.

Congrats on your Golden Eagle Award, Zeiko!
