Tyson Lee, “we had seats right over there in the blue, we use to watch them and look forward to it.” Now Tanner is a star in the Ivy League, and he’s making headlines this week in Boston as he helped Harvard beat Cornell Saturday by intercepting 2 passes, that earned Tanner the Ivy League the Player of the Week Award and his parents have some more bragging rights.
Tyson, “How’s it make me feel? You know I am a big fan of my son obviously, and you know it was great to see him get an opportunity, actually be able to make a difference on the field.”
Kelly Lee, “I went to a Columbia game, I believe the first year, he didn’t play, but it was fun just being there, being a part of it, all of the fans, just watching how everything works, it was really cool.”
When it comes to parenting, you might say the Lee’s are doing the right things, their daughter plays on Spanish Fort’s state championship volleyball team and excels in few other extracurricular activities as well.
Tyson, “ you know Savannah is doing well, she was 6A triple jump champion in track as a junior, her team won the state volleyball state championship, they’re competing for it again this year, she was the homecoming queen this year, she’s doing well, she is in the top ten academically.”
And Lee’s baby boy is an up and coming gridiron star who’s made a name for himself in middle school ball.
Kelly, “ every night we have something to do, Sunday’s are usually our only day off, between the three of them, right now it’s a little lit easier with Tanner being at Harvard, but we are still missing his games, but will still support our other kids. “
Having the oldest set examples is a bonus, the Lee’s are proud to say Tanner’s doing quite well in the classroom at Harvard and they are proud to say their kids are products of Baldwin County Public Schools.
Tyson, “ I’m a big advocate public schools, I think Baldwin County has great public schools.”
