Lee ready to lead Jaguars into battle

NORMAN — Bryson Lee fought hard. The 6-0, 195-pound junior wanted to be the starting quarterback for Westmoore and battled the entire offseason and summer to earn it.

Even after Lee held off senior Devon Navarro and was named the starter a week before the season began, some were still skeptical about how well he would perform. But heading into the final week of the regular season, Lee has proven he was the right man for the job.

“He’s developed real good,” tailback Kieron Hardrick said. “I wasn’t expecting this, to be honest with you, because he hasn’t played quarterback in a long time. But he’s doing really good. He’s actually stepped up for the team playing quarterback for the first time in two or three years. I give it to him. He’s doing really good this year.”

Last year, Lee was a starting linebacker for Westmoore, pounding anyone in a different uniform that came into his territory. But after quarterback Jhames West graduated, coach Billy Langford decided to move Lee back to the position he began his high school career at.

“He played as a freshman,” cornerback Kiante Channel said. “He’s an athlete. He can play anything almost.”

Lee had led the Jaguars to a 7-1 record in eight career starts at quarterback. The only game he hasn’t played in, due to a concussion, was the 26-23 overtime win against Sapulpa.

But Lee came back last week and accounted for four touchdowns against Tulsa Edison. Three of them came through the air.

“I did pretty good,” Lee said. “There were a couple of passes I left out on the field. But overall, I think I did pretty good.”

Lee has done pretty well for the entire season. Whether it’s been with his arm, legs or sheer tenacity, he’s transformed himself into the type of quarterback the Jaguars needed.
