Author: Adam Lewis

An alumnus of Washington State University's Edward R. Murrow College of Communication, Lewis is a sports journalist working at Sportspress Northwest. He spent his first three years in Pullman at the school newspaper writing his weekly column "Backrow Banter" while covering the WSU baseball team. His opinion piece in the fall of 2011 on Cougars football, "The Campus That Cried Wulff" received attention from media outlets throughout the Northwest. The column called for the immediate dismissal of former WSU head coach Paul Wulff. With a family background in the newspaper industry, Lewis's passion for objective sports journalism wins out over passion for his favorite teams. Lewis graduated cum laude from WSU in May. His senior year on the Palouse was spent covering Mike Leach's tumultuous first year coaching the Cougars. At Sportspress Northwest, Lewis will help cover the Storm, Mariners and Seahawks before returning to Pullman in August to cover WSU football's fall camp.
