Sean Lewis returns to FC Tulsa on his multi-year contract signed before the 2021 season.
A hindered 2021 campaign saw Lewis make only 16 starts and 17 appearances as the keeper was limited by injuries during both the front and back ends of the schedule. Lewis would make 42 saves during the season and tallied three clean sheets as well.
Lewis was a crucial part of the success of the FC Tulsa defense in 2020, playing every minute of all 16 matches. Lewis' 79% save percentage was the best of his professional career, and his 51 saves were third best in the USL Championship amongst all keepers.
No goalkeeper made as many saves while allowing as few goals as Sean Lewis in 2020. He recorded four clean sheets, the most of any single season as a professional, despite the pandemic-shortened campaign.
For his record-breaking season, Lewis was named the club's Most Valuable Player in 2020 as well as Fan Favorite of the Year.
Lewis started 16 matches in net for Tulsa in 2019 and was the first choice keeper when healthy for Coach Nsien’s squad. Tulsa's record was 5-7-4 with him in net as opposed to 3-7-5 when he was unable to play.
He recorded five of the club’s eight wins in 2019 while leading the team in all statistical goalkeeping categories including 48 total saves, a 61.5 save pct. and two clean sheets.
Sean Lewis ranks second amongst all Tulsa keepers with 49 appearances and 4,229 minutes. His nine clean sheets are also second most in club history, trailing all-time leader Fabian Cerda, who has 11. Lewis' 149 saves for FC Tulsa is also second all-time in club history behind Cerda as well.
