2017: NYCFC’s first pick in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft came on strong in the second half of the season, appearing in a total of 11 matches and contributing two goals and an assist to City’s attack. Though NYCFC possesses a lot of firepower, Lewis could be primed for a breakthrough 2018 season, ala Jack Harrison.
Jonathan Lewis was named Mid-American Conference Freshman of the Year after recording two goals and 12 assists at the University of Akron in 2016. The Florida native is a member of the U.S. U-20 Men's National Team camp called in preparation for the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship.
Prior to Akron, Lewis played for Chicago Fire Academy, Plantation FC and Kendall SC. He scored 20 goals in 22 academy games playing for Kendall SC.
