Lee Golf Signs McCallie's McNabb
Wednesday, November 18, 2020
The Lee men's golf team has wrapped up the 2021 class with the signing of Bennett McNabb from Ringgold, Ga. McNabb played his high school golf at McCallie in Chattanooga and makes the short trip up I-75 to join the nationally sixth ranked, Lee Flames.
"We're ecstatic about adding Bennett to our program. He comes from a great family, and a very good high school program at McCallie," said Lee Director of Golf, John Maupin. "Anytime we have a chance to keep great local players at home we want to do it. Bennett will bring a lot to our team next year.
I love his passion for the game and his work ethic. He really impressed us this summer with some great results in some big tournaments. I don't think there's any question that he will play a big role in the future success of our team."
McNabb was also recruited by NCAA D1 schools, Tennessee Tech, Austin Peay, and Middle Tennessee State. On why he chose Lee, McNabb responded, "I came here because of the possibility to compete for a national championship for the team and individually. I'm looking forward to having the opportunity to compete and win at a high level and getting to work with players that are better than I am and learn from their experience while being a part of something bigger than myself."
