Patton Signs English Standout Lewis Roskilly to NLI

April 18, 2014

BOISE, Idaho - Greg Patton, Boise State’s men’s tennis coach, announced today the signing of Lewis Roskilly (Stevenage, England) to a National Letter of Intent. Roskilly is a standout among the junior ranks not only in the United Kingdom but Europe as well. The freshman-to-be is the first to sign with Boise State for the 2014-15 season.

“I chose Boise State as I’m family orientated and Boise is sure to become another big family of mine,” said Roskilly.

Lewis Roskilly hails from Stevenage, England, where he has made a name for himself in the junior tennis ranks. He is ranked No. 4 in the United Kingdom, No. 133 in the International Tennis Federation U18 world rankings, and top-35 for his age group in Europe. In addition, he has won two English junior national championships. Roskilly will join the Broncos this fall in preparation for the 2014-15 season.

“We hit a home run today which will resonate for the next four to five years with the signing of Lewis Roskilly from the United Kingdom. As there was the British invasion of Rock and Roll in the 1960’s, we have had our own 21st century Bronco Tennis version of that which started with the likes of Scott Sears, Andy Bettles and Toby Mitchell. Now it will continue with the lineage of Lewis Roskilly who is not only a top British player but an elite junior player at the international level. With Lewis as part of the Bronco family our future will continue to sparkle like a full moon night in the Idaho mountains.”
