T Lee, A Future in Football
Chattahoochee High School Defensive Back, T Lee, has college offers flying in from around the country. Lee is about to enter his sophomore year in Alpharetta, GA, and his second season on the Cougar’s Varsity Team.
In his freshman season as a full time starter, Lee accumulated 27 tackles, 1 interception, and 16 pass break-ups. An overall successful season as a team, Lee’s size and speed, and a solid statistical year, helped Lee receive offers from multiple schools; including UCLA, Syracuse, Central Florida, Southern Miss, and Charlotte. “It’s an honor and a blessing to have offers at such a young age. I thank God for every opportunity and blessing he has given me,” said Lee.
Since last season, Lee has been training both physically and mentally to make him a better player. Physically, he has been participating in 7v7 tournaments with Pro Impact in Jacksonville, FL, and was named to the All-American team by Top Gun 7v7. He’s also working on his training regimen in the weight room, and seeing results. At the beginning of his freshman season Lee weighed 150 pounds, and now going into summer camp he weighs 165. Mentally, he has been watching game film. For Chattahoochee’s opponents next season he is reading coverages, looking at Wide Receiver routes, and learning route combinations that opposing Quarterbacks like to call in the games.
The goal for the next three years is obviously to perform well enough to receive even more offers, but for the upcoming season Lee is a little more focused on the game than future colleges. In 2017, he is aiming to have at least 4 interceptions and at least 20 tackles. As one of the top Defensive Backs in the region, he is preparing to not get targeted as much, but when he does he wants the ball in his hands one way or another. Lee occasionally plays offense at the Wide Receiver position and plans to have at least 8 touchdowns and 1,000 yards receiving.
“I will keep working hard and protecting my craft so I can get better and play well during the games. Colleges that already offered me won’t regret it and the colleges that haven’t offered could consider pulling the trigger this early in my career.” Lee’s ball skills at his age are stunning, and his game film backs it up. T Lee is going to continue to ball out until he graduates in 2020 and is definitely a name to watch out for.
