Mr Weeks said, “On behalf of the Progressive Labour Party, I would like to congratulate Mr. Zeiko Lewis on being selected 17th in the MLS draft by the New York Red Bulls.

“Zeiko is a highly skilled player who has served as our Bermuda international team captain and we are all proud of his accomplishment. He has always led from the front with his high energy and never-say-die attitude.

“Zeiko comes from a strong family legacy rooted in football and community service. His grandfather Fred Lewis, a former professional player, is President of the Young Men’s Social Club and his father, Troy Lewis, serves on the executive of both the club and the Bermuda Football Association.

“His development as a player is also a winning endorsement of the Social Club’s excellent junior program. We wish Zeiko all the best as he embarks on his professional career,” added Mr Weeks.

    Premier? And comment about this momentous occasion for a young Bermudian? Minister? Anyone in Gov’t? Since you are all about “The Bermudian”

      I think you’ll find the whole island is proud of Zeiko for getting drafted. Personally I am impressed with his determination to prove why he should have been picked earlier. I don’t remember any political parties mentioning Reggie when he went to Toronto FC.

      Will he make a success of himself in the MLS??? With his determination he has a very good chance, especially with his level of determination.

      i don’t see why congratulations need to be offered on behalf of any political party. I can’t think of anything that has less to do with politics in fact.

      Maybe just congratulations from one human being to another is enough?
