#31 Champ Lee
Class: RS Senior
Hometown: Lakeland, Fla
Thoughts: Champ was once again a big part of Louisville's special teams last season. I wish someone would make a highlight video of all 53 punts last year. (I know, not real exciting) because I feel like Champ was one of the first two or three people on the ball almost every time. With depth at linebacker it's been challenging for Champ to crack the regular rotation, although he did get some limited duty last season on the second row. Champ appeared in all 13 games last season, mostly on special teams of course, but he obviously has the talent to get on the field consistently. Hopefully Champ continues to stay healthy and keep our streak of great punt return defense intact.
Sweet Tweet: No twitter for Champ that I could find. This gives me the opportunity to congratulate Champs mom for the naming of her son. This is a gutsy call to go with "Champ" as you pretty much have to bank on them being successful at something. What if you go with "Champ" and he ends up failing at everything he tries.You're not looking so hot in the naming category. So, congratulations Champ's mom. You did indeed raise a Champ. My mother on the other hand also made a risky move. I mean really, who names their kid "CardinalStrong"? Sure it's great now, but you should have been around during the Ron Cooper area.
