Name on the Marqise

Incoming USC football freshman Marqise Lee followed in fellow Serra alum Robert Woods' footsteps by winning the Cal-Hi State Athlete of the Year.

Serra stars turned Trojans have dominated this award the last two years as Lee edged out teammate George Farmer. 

Lee won state championships in both football and basketball during his time as a Cavalier.  Plus, he posted the third best wind-legal long jump mark (24-foot, 8-inch) in the nation as a high school senior.

Given his freakish athletic ability, Lee could be a versatile piece on the gridiron.  He will start camp as a wide receiver, but Lane Kiffin could try him at defensive back at some point. 

Plus, Kevin O'Neill might need a lockdown defender on the hardwood come winter time.
