Year inducted into Hall of Fame: 2006
Greg Lewis made a name for himself as a star tailback at Washington from 1987 to 1990. As a senior, he rushed for 1,407 yards, a school record at the time, and earned Pac-10 Conference Offensive Player of the Year honors. Lewis was also lauded with the inaugural Doak Walker Award, given to the nation's top junior or senior running back, and finished seventh in the Heisman Trophy voting, the highest finish ever for a Husky offensive player. Lewis, who rushed for 1,197 yards as a junior, was the first UW runningback to rush for 1,000 yards or more in consecutive seasons. His 15 career 100-yard games are second-most in the UW record books. Lewis still holds the Husky record for consecutive games with 100 yards rushing or more, compiling a streak of 10 such games during the 1989 and 1990 seasons. After he finished his college career, Lewis spent two seasons with the Denver Broncos before returning to complete his degree in political science from UW in 1993. Lewis later returned to work in the Husky Athletic Department and is in his fifth year as the staff liaison to the Big "W" Alumni Club, and added Special Assistant to the Athletic Director to his title in 2004.
