Marquis Lee overcomes a really rough childhood


a really good read.
quote:

How old was he, Lee wonders as he rolls up his left sleeve, on the day his brother was killed? His sister was with him — he knows that — so it couldn't have been during the years they spent in separate foster homes. He knows his mother wasn't there, so that eliminates the time he spent with her. He also knows he was sleeping on a living room couch, not a motel floor.


quote:

This was after Lee and his siblings were taken from their grandmother's custody, after they were sent to separate foster homes around town. "Going to court was OK," says Stacy, "because that was pretty much the only time we got to see each other." Lee and his brothers bounced around a few different homes. "

Lee or Watkins - 2012 season?
quote:



Sammy Watkins is what made Clemson this year IMO


quote:

Sammy Watkins. There's no doubt in my mind.


quote:

Watkins ADED


quote:

Watkins was dominant from week 1, while it took Lee a few games to get adjusted. Also, Lee benefitted from having Robert Woods and Matt Barkley as well. Watkins


quote:

Sammy


quote:

Watkins is the best freshman WR since Michael Crabtree


quote:

Watkins....its close tho


quote:

Watkins will win in a landslide here on a southern biased site.


quote:

Watkins..next question


quote:

Watkins.

Samuel Watkins


2012 B. Award Winner

Ah, the wisdom of Tigerdroppings.

re: Marquis Lee overcomes a really rough childhood


I'm glad he was able to make it out. I only hope he can do well in the league and stay out of trouble. Its hard to make it out of the hood. Hopefully he can be a positive role model to others who are in his position that he was growing up

Do you really want to bring up talent evaluations before the season? Really?


Really?

I guess he should be thanking Jesus for his amazing talents then...

re: Marquis Lee overcomes a really rough childhood


I expect Marqise to have a good NFL career (barring injury). He's a level-headed guy. He seems to be outspoken though, or at least that has been the case this fall.

Could be interesting to see how that could trend when he is playing professionally.

Fight On!
