One win Lee is still alive

By Ryan Peterson - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -  It's not how they drew things up in the preseason, but the Tyler Lee Red Raiders have control of their own playoff destiny entering the final week of the regular season.  Despite a 1 and 8 record, the Red Raiders will clinch the final playoff spot in District 11-5A with a win over North Mesquite Friday night.

"It's been a very weird season," said Lee Defensive Tackle Bryce Braly.  "We've made a lot of mistakes offensively and defensively but I think Friday when it comes down to it, we're going to step up and play the best we've ever played."

It's been a tough season for the Red Raiders, but a win would erase all the close losses.  And give the senior class one more chance to make a playoff run.

"I don't want to see it end," said Lee Offensive Lineman Dakota Smith.  "I've been with these guys a long time. So the playoffs gives us a chance to keep going and keep playing together."
