Gridster: Lewiston = Slice Of Heaven

You might crinkle your nose when you think of Lewiston, but center Nate Leonard of the University of Texas San Antonio considers it a slice of heaven. In his Diary of a Football Player blog for the Huffington Post, Leonard describes how amazed he was when he saw Lewiston during a successful trip for a game against the Idaho Vandals at the Kibbie Dome (which he also described in positive terms):

I really didn't know what to expect when we traveled to Idaho this past weekend. Having grown up in Texas, I naturally was brought up to believe that the Lone Star State took up most of the United States. Any other state outside of it was just filler and all Idaho does is grow potatoes. I never have felt more blessed to be wrong. Lewiston, Idaho, was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Mesmerizing mountains rolled into emerald-green hills set amongst purple skies. That landscape continued for miles as candy-apple red barns sprouted from the folds of green like something from a priceless piece of art. Full post here.
