In his fourth year of leading the team, Coach Danny Kloza has started the season off right as he directed the team to a 17-16 win over the Marshall Rams.
Marshall made it to the playoffs last year and Lee’s performance is promising.
Receiver Sergio Solis put in a promising 10 catches for 95 yards and both touchdowns while the defense held the Rams to 216 total yards.
Lee’s two quarterbacks, Freedom Salas and Nick Lugo, are underclassmen who have stepped up into the position well.
In the season opener last year, Marshall defeated Lee 43-14.
The Vols next face Holmes who is coming off a 52-0 loss at Northside’s Gustafson Stadium at 7 p.m.
