GAC's Lewis, Mujahid named All-Americans

Greater Atlanta Christian athletes Andrew Lewis and Kayin Mujahid were named National Strength and Conditioning Association All-American Athletes of the Year. Only 229 college and high school athletes received the award.

Lewis, a football player and a member of the Spartans' state-title winning basketball team, received this honor for excelling in athletics and being dedicated to strength training and conditioning. He has signed with the Virginia Military Institute football program.

"Andrew always does his job. He is always on time, always in position, always ready to compete," GAC strength and conditioning coach Gary Schofield said. "During his high school career, he has been a consistent performer both on the field and off of it. He is a high achiever in the classroom, during service projects, campus community and on the training floor. Andrew never gets satisfaction from his personal achievements but that of his teammates and classmates. His athleticism alone qualifies him for this great honor, but it is his amazing character that separates him from the others. Andrew is what GAC is all about."

Fellow Spartan, Mujahid, a school record holder in the 400-meter dash and a 2012 state champion in the 400-meter relay, received the honor for her athletic prowess on the track and being very dedicated to strength training and conditioning.

"Kayin is one of those special student-athletes that come along every so often," Schofield said. "She has an amazing combination of strength, speed and conditioning that allows her to stand out in track and field. More importantly, she is a standout on our campus because of her character. Kayin always has a smile and a positive word for teammates, teachers and coaches. Her competitive fire burns to give her best at every opportunity and she never shies from a challenge. When she trains, the room stops to watch."
