Park View's Lee commits to JMU

Park View senior quarterback Brandon Lee orally committed to play football at James Madison University Thursday afternoon.

Lee, who also started at defensive back, established himself as one of the top play-makers in the AA Dulles District over the last two seasons. The 6-1, 196-pound quarterback amassed 2,273 passing yards and 23 touchdowns and rushed for 1,301 yards and 17 scores in his two seasons as the starter under center. Lee played both ways for the first time this fall was named to the all-district first teams on offense and defense and earned Dulles District Division 3 offensive player of the year honors. Defensively, he accounted for 57 total tackles, 13 tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks and four blocked kicks. Lee was named first team all-Region II and second team all-state at the AA level.

On his decision to join James Madison Coach Clayton Matthews and the Dukes, Lee said: “It’s exciting. I think they have a great program and I’m excited to show up, work hard, and try to earn a spot. But the opportunity is there and that’s all I can ask for.”

The Patriots finished the 2009 season with an 8-4 record and advanced to the Region II Division 3 final where they lost to Handley. Lee is currently a member of the Patriots varsity basketball team, and plans to join the track and field team this spring. Park View High School will hold a signing ceremony for Lee on Wednesday, Feb. 3.
