Former Everett High and Trinity Christian (Tex.) star Cine selected in NFL draft

Lewis Cine hasn’t stayed put for too long during his 22 years so moving to a new city to play for whichever team picks him in the NFL draft figures to be an easy transition.
That city will be Minneapolis as he was selected in the first round with the 32nd pick by the Minnesota Vikings.
The safety was born in Haiti and came to the United States on a visa when he was about 4 years old. He went back and forth between his home country and Florida until he was 8 when he moved to Massachusetts.
Cine played football at Everett High School, about 7 miles outside of Boston where he already drew the attention of big-time programs before his junior season that ended with a state championship.

He moved to Cedar Hill, Texas near Dallas to play his senior season at Trinity Christian High School where he could focus more on his game at a football-crazy state. He won another state title during a season where he was coached by Hall of Famer Deion Sanders who was an assistant.
Cine committed to Georgia football in October of his senior season and started 27 games for the Bulldogs from 2019-21, leading the team with 73 tackles and 9 pass breakups as a junior.
“I think I bring size, speed, physicality and leadership,” Cine said. “I’m only getting better. I’m young, got a whole lot of energy and I’m a sponge. I’m coming in to learn, coming in to be really productive.”
