Outside Linebackers


After spending the 2015 season as a graduate assistant (defense), Dylan Lewellyn was promoted to ETSU’s outside linebackers coach in 2016. Lewellyn now enters his third season with the Blue and Gold in 2017. 

In his two seasons working with the outside linebackers, Lewellyn has seen Austin Gatewood and Trey Quillin be the leaders of the group. Quillin has started all 22 games for the Bucs over the last two seasons, while Gatewood has started 21 of the possible 22 games. The Buccaneer duo has totaled 194 tackles, 25 tackles for loss, 6.5 sacks, five forced fumbles and one interception. Gatewood as posted 110 tackles (11.5 TFL) and four forced fumbles in his first two seasons, while Quillin has nothced 84 tackles (13.5 TFL) and four sacks in two years. The 13.5 TFLs and four sacks top all Buccaneer players during this span. 

Lewellyn played collegiately at Liberty from 2010-14 and was coached by current ETSU head coach Carl Torbush in 2012. The High Point, N.C. native played in 37 games (17 starts) for the Flames, while helping guide Liberty to four Big South Championship titles – including its first ever FCS Playoff appearance and playoff win over James Madison in 2014. 

Lewellyn ranked fourth on the team in tackles in his senior season as he totaled 62 in 2014, while he posted a team-leading 16 tackles in a 56-31 win over Brevard on Sept. 13, 2014. The 16-tackle game marked the most by Liberty player since 2008. Lewellyn graduated in a senior class that compiled 38 wins over their career, which ranked fourth in school history. 

Lewellyn received his Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a minor in Education from Liberty. He currently resides in Johnson City, while his father Don played football at Guilford College and brother Bryant played at Liberty and is the current defensive tackles coach for the Flames.
