WARSAW – Andrew Mevis provided quite the kick to the Warsaw football program the past couple of seasons.
The WCHS star senior will now be part of the rich athletic tradition of the school forever.
Mevis, who has signed to play at Fordham University next season, presented his All-American jersey to the school Saturday prior to the boys basketball game versus Merrillville. The jersey will be displayed in the trophy cases outside the Tiger Den.
Mevis, a 5-11, 190-pounder, was a difference maker this past fall in earning Under Armour All-American honors. He was 43-45 on PATs and drilled 9-12 field goals for coach Phil Jensen’s team. The nine field goals tie the program’s single-season record.
Mevis, who also excels in the classroom with an 11.9 GPA, also tied the school record with a 51-yard field goal versus Concord. That mark he now shares with Jake Rogers, who went on to kick for the University of Cincinnati and in the NFL.
Mevis was ranked as the eighth best kicker in the country by Kohl’s Kicking. He handled all of the kicking duties for the Tigers, including punting.
Mevis, who also played soccer, thanked coach Jensen, along with special teams coordinator Cole Richards and WCHS principal Troy Akers during the jersey presentation Saturday in the Tiger Den.
Levis played in the Under Armour All-American Bowl in Florida on Jan. 1. He drilled a 46-yard field goal in the game to help his team to a victory.
