Brotherhood attracted Britt Lee

Offensive lineman Britt Lee of Greater Atlanta Christian School (Norcross, Ga.) signed with the U.S. Military Academy on Wednesday. Look inside for a photo and quotes from Lee.

"I got to school around seven in the morning," said Britt Lee. "My family was all there. I was both excited and nervous, but excitement was the biggest emotion. Coach (Tim) Hardy made comments about each of the players who were signing, then we went to our individual tables to sign our letters of intent. It was a pretty awesome day.

"On my official visit, I sat down with Coach Monken and after our talk, I knew Army was the place for me. I wanted to commit to him then but decided to go home first and talk it over with my mom and dad. The next day I called Coach [Brent] Davis and let him know I wanted to be a Black Knight.

"When I met the guys on the visit I got a sense of the great bond they share. I felt what they're talking about when they say 'the brotherhood' at West Point. I already knew some of the coaches from having been recruited by them when they were at Georgia Southern. It felt right and like something I knew I wanted to be a part of."

Lee, 6-foot-3, 295-pounds, was a two-year starter at Greater Atlanta Christian at left guard. He said his position has not been specified by the Army staff, just somewhere on the interior. Lee was named first team all-State in Georgia Class AA in his senior season. He will start out at U.S.M.A.P.S. Top Stories
