Dave Lewis, along with his frequent partner Arthur Coddington, have won more World Titles in the past few years than any other team.

Dave "The Specialist" has made a slow and steady climb to the top rankings. His attention to detail and hard work have paid dividends over the long haul.
Dave began his playing career in the early 80's. He stopped playing while attending college then rejuvenated his playing career in the early 90's. When he returned he did so with an uncommon passion and a work ethic second to none.

He is the consummate professional with no weaknesses to his game. He can do an incredible variety of moves both clock and counter. He is at his best with a gentle breeze where he can showcase his many skills. His game is a well rounded balance of complicated delay maneuvers, long tipping combos, clever kicks and a wide variety of catches. He's as good as anyone at spinning catches.

Look for Dave to stay atop the leader board for a long time. He and his steady partner Arthur Coddington are one of the greatest pairs teams of all time.
