Instead of hanging around with people who would drag him down, Lewis began choosing his friends more carefully, Stover said.When Lewis gave the team the news that he had been charged, Stover said the other players unanimously supported him.
"It was, 'Man, I'm so glad to see you, we love you man,'" Stover recalled. '"Letís move on as a team.'" Stover also wanted the world to know that Lewis is primarily motivated by his Christian faith, and that he would carry that with him after retiring from the sport.
"Ray wants to use that for His glory," Stover said of Lewis' talents on the field. "Not for his own."
