Jericho Lee is used to winning. It was that way in the three years he played at Godby High School, and he firmly expects the wins to keep coming once he arrives at Florida International in the fall.

The towering defensive tackle committed to play at Florida International earlier this month largely because he wanted to be a part of history.

In eight years of football the Golden Panthers have never had a winning season, but that has not deterred Lee from believing that trend will change.

“I have a chance to be a part of history,” Lee said. “Before (Florida State) and Florida were FSU and Florida they had to start somewhere. When you have not been out there as long, you want to build that reputation and that winning name. I feel I can be a part of that and enhance that as much as possible.”

Florida International was the first to offer a scholarship and the first place Lee visited. After taking a trip to Montgomery to check out what Alabama State had to offer, he committed to play for the Golden Panthers.

Despite playing football for the first time once he arrived in high school, Lee received offers from Northern Illinois, Alabama State, Southern Mississippi, Tulane and Tulsa.
