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."

McNabb's Accomplishments:
2020 Tennessee State Amateur (78-69-71-74)
T-5 in 2020 TSSAA State Championship (74-75)
T-11 in 2019 TSSAA State Championships (74-73)
All-Tournament Team 2019 City Prep (70)

Why is it that some employees will be getting a raise and others are not? That doesn't really ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Why I Am Thankful

For the life of me, I can’t remember when it started but back in the ‘70s, I began devoting my sports column on Thanksgiving Day to off-the-wall stuff of which I was truly and genuinely thankful. Back then I would go to from “76 reasons”, then “77 Reasons”, and then “78 reasons” with every new year. We climbed through 80’s, and the 90’s and it became a tradition. By then it had ...
