"Beer Man" Helping AIM in Albany

May 6, 2007

Albany -- If you want proof arena football players can make it to the NFL, just ask New Orleans Saints receiver/return man Michael Lewis.

The former beer truck driver played in the arena football league against Wildcats head coach Derek Stingley before moving on to the NFL.

Lewis is in Albany this week, getting ready for the 3rd annual AIM for Youth golf tournament, and says he's excited about the opportunity.

"Coming and doing the commercial and getting the chance to meet with the youth for the football program. I can't wait," says Lewis. AIM stands for "Athletic Improvement and Mentoring."

The golf tournament is May 18th and 19th at Grand Island Country Club.
