2009 Season - David Lee named Player of the Week again
After erasing a legendary name from the Augustana record books last Saturday, sophomore quarterback David Lee (Springfield HS, Springfield, Ill.) has been named the “Offensive Player of the Week” in the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin. Lee passed for 422 yards in a 42-13 victory over Millikin on Saturday, November 14 to break the school record of 410 that was held by former NFL MVP Ken Anderson.
Lee completed 25 of 34 passes for 422 yards and two touchdowns. He also scored a pair of rushing touchdowns in the game as he helped the Vikings finish the season with a 6-4 overall record and a 4-3 mark in the CCIW. For the second week in a row Lee supplanted Anderson in the school record book. Last week, in a loss to North Central, he broke Anderson’s mark for completions in a single game.
Lee finished the season with 1,714 passing yards with 152 completions in 237 attempts for a percentage of .641. He threw for 10 touchdowns with just six interceptions and had a 133.75 passing efficiency rating. He finished with the second highest single-season passing yardage in school history. Anderson holds the school record with 2,117 yards during his sophomore season of 1968. Lee is now ninth in career passing yardage with 1,730.
The son of Stephen Lee, and the late Shirley Tappendorf Lee, of Springfield, David is a business management major at Augustana. This was the second time this season that he has earned the CCIW’s “Offensive Player of the Week” award.
