The Edgemont Hoops nonprofit organization is governed by a Board of Directors, profiled below:
NATHANIEL J. LEWIS, Vice President. Nate Lewis is a senior at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine where he majors in Philosophy and is Vice President of the club basketball team.
Nate played Edgemont Rec, travel, modified, JV, and varsity. On varsity, he was team MVP, All-League, and All-Conference Honorable Mention for the 2018-19 season.
Nate has spent numerous summers as a counselor at the Mount Vernon Boys & Girls Club. He became an Edgemont Hoops Board Member in 2022 and also serves as Vice President.
Nate periodically offers private basketball training to Edgemont youth players. Though only 5’8”, he has experience training both guards and post players. In his youth, he played down-low, but when the growth spurt he was promised never came, he transitioned to the perimeter.
Nate’s proudest accomplishments include making left-handed layups, occasionally touching the rim, and beating his brother in 1-on-1.
SAMUEL J. LEWIS, Secretary/Treasurer. A scrappy point guard known for his entry passes and antiquated fakes, Sam is an alumnus of the Edgemont Rec, travel, and modified basketball programs.
Sam played for the Edgemont JV squad for the 2011–2013 seasons and the varsity during the 2013–2014 season under the inimitable Coach Joe Galgano.
During one college summer working as a counselor at Camp Winnebago in Maine, Sam coached teams to an overall 0–10 intercamp record.
After graduating from EHS, Sam attended Bowdoin College, where his intramural team the “Bowdoin State Warriors” won the league his senior year. While attending the University of Cambridge for master’s programs in history and philosophy, Sam spent two seasons riding the bench for the Cambridge Lions under legendary Serbian coach Nebojša Radić. Sam was also the team’s official blogger.
Now a 2L at the Harvard Law School, Sam exhibits the Edgemont Hoops spirit during pickup games at Hemenway Gymnasium.
Sam maintains that he has never lost to his brother in 1-on-1.
JONATHAN A. LEWIS, President. An Edgemont resident since 2001, Jon is the founder and President of Edgemont Hoops and also a member of the Board of Directors.
Jon is an active member of the Edgemont community’s basketball culture. In addition to organizing and playing in pickup games, he has coached recreational and travel basketball teams for all four of his children in various recreational, travel, intramural and school programs.
On most days, Jon may be found on an Edgemont basketball court teaching an up-and-coming player proper layup footwork.
Jon received the Edgemont Community Council’s Silver Bowl Award in 2017 in part for his community basketball organizing efforts.
