Former Tech star shines in Arena League

Former Tennessee Tech standout Derek Lee continues to play a major role for the Georgia Force in the Arena Football League. Last week, the one-time all-OVC wide receiver was named first-team all-AFL and also earned a spot on the league's All-Ironman team.

An Atlanta native, Lee was named all-OVC for the Golden Eagles in 2001. On Sunday, May 21, Lee helped the sixth-seeded Force upset the No. 3-seeded New York Dragons, 72-69, to advance to the second round of the AFL playoffs.

Now in his second AFL season, Lee recorded 127 receptions for 1,427 yards and 26 touchdowns on offense, while adding 15.5 tackles, 3 interceptions, 3 pass defenses, and a fumble recovery on defense.

Lee's 127 catches set a new franchise mark for receptions in a single-season, breaking the previous mark of 113, set by Lee last year. He also led all WR/LB's in receptions during the regular season. Lee returned his third interception of the season 45 yards for a score in Georgia's, 55-20, win over Chicago in week 14.
