Fire The Cannons For James LeeJune 12th, 2011
Everyone’s favorite right tackle, James Lee, fed hundreds of people Saturday and held a free football camp for hundreds of kids in his old stomping grounds of Belle Glade, the tough streets of Muck City, as its known in sugar country.
Now Joe’s already talked to Lee and wrote about Lee’s great charitable work with his foundation and Muck City Fest, but hey, yesterday was the annual James Lee Day in Belle Glade, which Joe thinks is pretty damn cool.
The local media in South Florida was all over Lee and many of his NFL and Bucs buddies working with kids. Here’s a quote from WPTV-Ch.5.
“It’s very important that the kids get out and they see what I’ve done, what I can do and that it’s possible for them,” [Lee] said.
Lee’s teammates and friends in the NFL were happy to lend a hand.
“We all grew up in the same type of environment, the same type of neighborhoods and we made it out,” explained Buccaneers player Elbert Mack, “and the sky is the limit for them.”
Joe applauds all this great community work by various Bucs.
