Jordy Lewis signs on to stay a Hawk until 2017

Hawthorn’s joint vice-captain Jordan Lewis has signed a two-year contract extension which ties him to the club until the end of the 2017 AFL season.

The dual-premiership player is rated as one of the top five favourites to win the league’s highest individual honour the Brownlow Medal, to be announced on September 22.

“I’m very happy to sign for three years from the end of this year,” Lewis told Nine’s “The Sunday Footy Show”.

“It looks like I’ll be a Hawthorn player for life.”

Lewis, 28, has played 215 games since being recruited as No.7 pick in the 2004 AFL Draft.

The 186cm, 88kg utility is a Warrnambool product via the Geelong Falcons under-18 program.

Lewis is averaging almost 28 possessions per game in 22 matches in 2014, including 20 touches and three vital goals in Hawthorn’s qualifying-final win over Geelong last weekend.

Hawthorn host Port Adelaide in a knockout preliminary final at the MCG on Saturday.
