Local hero Michael Lewis will appear at the Saints Hall of Fame Museum on Friday, Aug. 26 from 5 p.m.-6:15 p.m., prior to the New Orleans Saints preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
A New Orleans native who played at Bonnabel High School and graduated from Grace King, Lewis played seven seasons for the Saints from 2001-06, returning one punt and three kickoffs for touchdowns while catching 28 passes for 553 yards and a score. He was named first team All-Pro in 2002. Lewis was inducted into the Saints Hall of Fame in 2015.
Lewis will be available for autographs and pictures.
Admission to the newly renovated Saints Hall of Fame Museum on game day is free to all holding game tickets. The Saints Hall of Fame Museum is located at Gate B on the Plaza Level of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and will now open when the gates to the Dome open, two hours prior to each Saints home game and for 45 minutes following each Saints contest.
The museum is open during the week by appointment at a cost of $7 per person, $5 for seniors, children under 12, military and groups of 10 or more.
