Jolly Good Fellow
Did not see this coming at all
Say it ain't so!
The young man was one of the leaders during the CGC transition. That may not mean much to some, but new coaches need current players to buy in...and Lee was one of the guys that helped the new staff with buy in from the team during coaching transition.
I wish JL well wherever life takes him. With the attitude he's shown, and his willingness to sacrifice himself to do what the team needs, and being a GT graduate of course, I have zero doubts he'll be successful in whatever he pursues.
WOW, pretty surprising news. And to those saying it frees up a scholarship next year, I don't believe it does. Lee wouldn't have counted against the limit next season as he would be a (5/6th year senior?) already, and I believe those will be exempt next year as part of the rule change. So in a way it was a use it or lose it type.
Shame to see him go, but he's definitely contributed tons over the years for the Jackets. Wish he had waited a couple more weeks!
