ORLANDO, Fla. - Junior wide receiver Branton Lee of Tallahassee (Fla.) North Florida Christian brought in three receptions for 86 yards and two touchdowns, doing his part in a 69-0 blowout victory for the Eagles over St. Petersburg (Fla.) Admiral Farragut in the Class 2A State Champion on Friday afternoon.
"It is a surreal feeling," Lee said of the victory. "I am almost in tears. I have a great group of guys that I play with. Everybody plays for one another, we are a team. We are a family, a unit. That is what brought us here."
Lee finished his junior season with 37 receptions for 666 yards and eight touchdowns. His production on the field for his undefeated squad has generated some early interest.
"I am hearing from a couple of schools," Lee said. "I have heard from South Carolina, USF, Miami, Iowa State, Texas Tech. I don't have any offers but I have schools interested."
The 5-foot-9, 165-pound wideout has yet to hit the road and check out any schools, but that will change this offseason.
"I will be taking some visits during the summer," Lee said. "I plan to go to some camps and get my name out there. I haven't really done that in the past, and I regret not doing that, but now it is the time - my senior year - and I plan to do that."
The Sunshine State prospect would prefer to remain in his homestate for his college career at this point.
"I definitely would like to go see USF and UCF - I have family down that way," Lee said. "I like all of the schools in Florida. I don't really want to go too far from my family. If I have to, I will."
