Early years

Lee attended Seabreeze High School in Daytona Beach, Florida. He set Florida's all-time record for passing yards (9,082), completions (549) and touchdowns (98) in football.[1] Lee, who was named Florida's Mr. Football in 2002 and 2003, also won state 3A Player of the Year honors as a junior and senior. During his senior season, he rushed for 461 yards and 13 touchdowns and was 188-for-304 (62 percent), passing for 3,075 yards with 33 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. The heavily recruited prospect was rated a five-star player and the No. 1 dual threat quarterback in the nation by Rivals.com. Lee played in the 2004 U.S. Army All-American Bowl. He signed with Florida State, passing up overtures by Ohio State, Tennessee, Texas, Auburn, and Florida.

College career

As a redshirt sophomore in 2006, Lee played in eight games, including three starts, and passed for 885 yards with 7 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Lee started for the injured Drew Weatherford on October 28, 2006, on the road at Maryland. He also started and won his first game on Saturday, November 4 at home against Virginia. On August 23, 2007, the eight-month quarterback competition ended when offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher named Weatherford the starting quarterback for the Seminole's opener at Clemson.

On September 29, 2007, Lee replaced Weatherford in the second quarter against Alabama and led the Seminoles to a 21-14 victory. Lee finished the game 12-19 with 224 yards, two touchdowns, one interception, and 11 rushes for 59 yards. His performance earned him the starting quarterback job and Atlantic Coast Conference co-Offensive Back honors for the week of October 1.[2] Lee subsequently gave the starter's job back to Drew Weatherford due to poor performance.

Baltimore Ravens

Lee decided to forgo his senior season at Florida State, and declared himself eligible for the 2008 NFL Draft. He was not invited to the NFL Combine, and therefore could only showcase his talent at Florida State's Pro Day, where he was measured in at 6'4", weighed 232 pounds, and was clocked at times of 4.54, 4.64, and 4.76 seconds in the 40 yard dash. Despite his workouts and Pro Day results, he was not selected in the 2008 NFL Draft. On May 16, 2008, the Baltimore Ravens signed Lee as an undrafted free agent. The Ravens signed him as a tight end instead of quarterback. He was released by the Ravens on June 26, 2008.[3]

af2

Following a brief stint as a wide receiver for the Southern New Hampshire Beavers of the New England Football League, Lee was invited to the preseason camp of the Arkansas Twisters of the af2 as a quarterback but was later converted to wide receiver. [4]
