Former NFL player Lewis instructs Zuni youthLewis works for the American Indian Services, which raises money for college scholarships for Native Americans to continue their education. He said he has been working with the association for close to 10 years, and it is an organization that has received help from other former NFL players like Steve Young.

For more than 10 years now, Lewis has been putting on camps across the country on reservations, with several of the camps in Arizona and New Mexico. The most recent camp was the first he has put on in Zuni, though he has been to the town for a youth conference two years ago. For one day, about 60 athletes that attended the free camp, including three girls, got a chance to get advice from a former pro tight end on different drills to run and plays to try.
