Dymond Lee One to Watch

It has been a breakout season for West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade athlete Dymond Lee. Playing receiver for the first time, the sophomore has been very impressive and came up big against Gardena (Calif.) Serra last Friday...

Dymond Lee has emerged as one of the top sophomores in the state this past season. After being a quarterback his whole life, Lee moved to receiver and was a quick study learning the position.

The athlete has caught 43 balls for 826 yards and nine touchdowns and flashes a nice combination of size, quickness and hands. He looks about 6-1, 170 pounds and is very smooth with a burst.

"I've played quarterback my whole life but I wasn't going to beat out Brad (Kaaya)," Lee joked following his game Friday. "I've always been a quarterback but I like receiver and I had fun with it. Right now, I'm just so excited to get this win, on their field.

"They embarrassed us earlier in the year so we came in with a chip on our shoulder. That first game, we had some injuries and played a really vanilla game. We didn't want to give too much away because we had a good feeling we would see them again. Right now, I'm at a loss for words, this is such a great feeling."

Miami has already offered Lee a scholarship but Lee said the rest of his recruitment has been pretty quiet.

"Being a sophomore, it's still early for me," Leei said. ‘I got some letters early from UCLA and Notre Dame but that's about it right now. Growing up, I liked Oregon a lot and I like that offense. I would like to play in a spread type offense like Oregon or Baylor, that's what I fit in.

"Location doesn't matter to me but I would like to stay in the Pac 12. I don't have a preference between quarterback or receiver either, I like both and it just depends on where the colleges want me."

This weekend, Chaminade will take on NewHall (Calif.) Hart in a SoCal regional championship with the winner playing in the Div II State championship in two weeks.
