Kaua’i High School graduate Scott Lee polished off a stellar collegiate foot-ball career at University of Nebraska-Omaha this past season.
Lee started off at Butte Community College in California as an offensive lineman, where he earned all-NorCal Conference and all-region honors.
The 6-foot-4, 320-pound Koloa boy then transferred to UNO, where he immediately won a starting offensive line-man position at left guard.
Lee was apart of the Maverick team that won the North Central Conference championship and narrowly missed being selected as a participant in last year’s NCAA Division II playoffs.
Lee, again a starter this past season, was one of the leaders on the Maverick team that won a share of the NCC Conference title, while being tabbed as the 16th best team in the final American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) poll.
It’s the third straight season the Mavericks have been ranked among the top 25 in the final poll.
UNO finished the season 8-3 and lost their final game to No. 3 ranked Saginaw Valley State.
“He was a major component of the line that helped the offense rush for 239 yards per game and yield just seven sacks,” one of his coaches said.
Lee wore #50 to represent Hawai’i as the 50th state.
He is the son of Sam and Sheila Lee of Koloa.
His major is business and he would like to end up in real estate.
Lee chose to attend UNO because of its football tradition and the coaching staff.
