File photoSt. James senior Jai Lewis has been named the RPF.com Player of the Week after a huge effort helping seal a Wildcats win.

With St. James clinging to a 20-15 lead over Bogalusa late in the 4th quarter Friday Wildcats coach Dwain Jenkins got the attention of senior linebacker/safety Jai Lewis.

"Two more plays," said Jenkins. "Two more plays is all we need."

"I got this," said Lewis who actually needed just one more play.

On a third-and-long Lewis registered a strip sack and recovered the fumble sealing the Wildcats first win of the season.

It capped off an impressive night for Lewis who finished with 12 tackles, 5 tackles for loss, 4 sacks, a forced fumble, and fumble recovery.

For his heroics, Lewis has been named the Week 2 Riverparishfootball.com Player of the Week.
