One of the top multi-sport athletes in the DFW area is McKinney QB Zach Lee, who besides being one of the top QB's in the area he's also a big time baseball prospect at pitcher. Lee a 6'4 195 pound junior with 4.7 speed in the forty led McKinney to a trip to the Class 4A playoffs throwing for 2935 yards and 33 touchdowns and chipping in 11 touchdowns on the ground to earn District 9-4A MVP honors.

As a sophomore in 2007, Zach threw for 1882 yards and 17 touchdowns along with four rushing touchdowns. Lee's prowess on the baseball diamond is well known, as a sophomore Lee was named District 9-4A MVP and is considered a potential top prospect in the 2010 baseball draft. On the gridiron Zach says his main strength is his accuracy and touch on the deep ball, while Lee says he wants to work on his speed and reading defenses.

Zach currently holds three offers from Texas Tech, Arizona and Nebraska along with major interest from Arizona State, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Lee says he's got no favorites at this time but he did attend Oklahoma's Junior Day a couple of weeks ago. "I really enjoyed Oklahoma, they have great facilties and treated us well," said Lee.

Look for the McKinney two sport star to have a very busy summer with summer baseball and seven on seven. As for the possibility of playing two sports in college Zach says he's open to the possibility, "I'd actually love the chance to play both football and baseball. I know its tough but I think getting the college experience is very important. Playing both sports will factor into my decision, I'm more likely to go somewhere that's open to me doing that," said Lee who also prefers to play in a warm weather climate.

After being eliminated in the first round of the playoffs in 2008, Lee and his McKinney teammates are hopeful for a big 2009. "I think we have the ability to win our district and make a deep playoff run, we just need to play four quarters."
