Air Force is making a strong push for Britt Lee, a 6-foot-3, 270-pound offensive lineman out of Greater Atlanta Christian School in Norcross, Ga. Falcon Defensive Coordinator Charlton Warren gave Lee the news last week. FalconsReport.com spoke to Lee on the offer and his thoughts on the program under Troy Calhoun.

"Coach Warren offered me over the phone," said Lee. "He said he loved my style of play. I'm aggressive, hard-nosed, and really get after it. He likes that I can play guard or center.

"I was very excited to receive the offer. Air Force is a great school. Coach Warren was explaining to me the success they've had in the past six to seven years and some of the players they've had there. I was very impressed with what he said. I'm definitely interested. I'm going to wait and weigh all of my options, but I think there would be a good opportunity for me at Air Force. When I was talking with Coach Warren he was telling me about a junior day in June. I'd like to take a visit then a look at all of the different aspects of the Academy."

In his first full season as a starter, Lee helped the GAC Spartans to the Georgia Class AA state semifinal game.

"As a junior, I started at left guard and recorded 83 pancakes," he said. "At the beginning of the season I played very aggressively and would lunge at my opponent. During the year, I developed more patience and became a better pass blocker.

"Next season I talked with my head coach about playing left tackle. I'm going to be the senior leader of the offensive line. I think we have a good chance to make another long run in the playoffs and win state. That would be a great way to finish my high school career."

Lee's other two offers have come from UAB and Jacksonville State. He reports interest from Connecticut, Georgia Tech, N.C, State, and Vanderbilt and plans on attending many one-day camps over the summer months.

"The main thing for me is finding a good school where I'll fit in," Lee stated. "Good academics are at the top for me because the NFL is a small possibility. I'm going to work hard and I think I'll have a good chance of making it [to the NFL], but having a good degree to fall back on is important. I'd like to join a good team that's winning and I can have fun on and talk with my buddies. I'd also like to go to a school with an avid fan base. It's good to have the community's support and see others involved and passionate about the program."

Lee's older brother, Banks, was a preferred walk-on the the University of Georgia. Both of his parents attended the University of Tennessee. Lee wears No. 63 for Spartan football coached by Tim Hardy.
