Marcus Lee Named East Bay Male Athlete of the Year

Marcus-lee    Marcus Lee has just bagged a pretty prestigious hometown award.  Marcus was named the East Bay Male Athlete of the Year.


Here are some quotes from his coaches :

“He’s the kind of kid you love to be successful because he worked really hard to get it and handles it with grace and humility,” said Lou Panzella, the Wolverines’ volleyball coach.

As good as he was in both sports, Lee didn’t get caught up in his own personal

achievements. When he wasn’t swatting shots, throwing down impressive dunks and pounding kills, Lee was his teammates’ biggest cheerleader.

“You will not find a kid that didn’t like playing with Marcus in any sport,” Deer Valley basketball coach LeChet Phillips said. “He was a great teammate and the greatest kid in the world to coach. If I made a mistake, he’d go out there and make it look good.”

Said Panzella: “He’s very caring and that’s what makes him a great teammate. Marcus is an outstanding basketball player and an outstanding volleyball player, but an even better person and that will carry him a long way.”
