Which amply demonstrates the talent at Lee is not at all time low....if one mentioned and his cousin who belong at Lee were lining up in Red tonight we wouldn't be having a discussion about PH game. Even if Pee Wee Herman was coaching Lee.  Lee normal numbers are in half so expect there are athletes walking halls choosing not to play because there parents cant move them to Union, Gate City , Thomas Walker. Not sure talent is an issue at Lee.

The talent level of the kids on the football team is lower than it has been in some time. There are a number of reasons that contributed to this situation.

Martin and his staff had winning seasons 4 out of 5 years, and made the playoffs all those years. He also didn't kiss up to the school board and they ran the program the way they wanted to, the right way.  He was fired because the good ol boy system and they had to get a coach that was best friends with all the school board members. The lame excuse they used for firing him was that he was a bus driver and they wanted the football coach to be someone that was at the school all the time. Averaged over 60 kids a year on the team those years, now can barely get 35 8-12 grade. That's why Lee will never turn the program around because they don't care about results just making sure all their buddies have the job they want.

It's quite a shame.
