Lee Reloads For Another Playoff Run

The Red Raiders season is officially underway.  Because they participated in spring drills, their season began a week late.  According to 12-5A coaches, the Red Raiders are the preseason district favorite. Only 8 starters return from last years team that reached the state's semi-finals, but they are expected to be as good as ever. And, head coach Mike Owens says he doesnt't mind starting practice a week later.

"Well, it's good," said Owens.  "We're taking a slow approach. We've got a lot done during spring training, so we've got a good idea what everybody can do. We're just trying to work everybody into shape right now."

Lee starts their season Saturday, August 28 against Port Arthur Memorial in the East Texas Football Classic at Rose Stadium.
