Sometimes all a team needs is a one-man wrecking crew – or “Bear” conqueror in this case.
Harold Lee was that man for the Auburn Trojans on Friday night, scoring on offense, defense and special teams in a 42-7 SPSL North rout over Tahoma in Maple Valley.
“When a kid is out there doing that, I don’t have any control over it,” Auburn coach Gordon Elliott said. “You just love seeing it. There is so many different ways he affected the game tonight and when you have a player like that, it’s fun to watch.”
Running out of the wing back and wide receiver slots on offense, Lee pounded his way to 163 yards from scrimmage and accumulated 333 total yards and five touchdowns.
Lee, who also is a defensive back and returner, got the Trojans offense rolling on the seventh play of the game when he found a 45-yard opening on a fly sweep.
On defense, the senior was stout in the open field making numerous tackles for those that crossed paths with him.
More importantly, however, was Lee’s playmaking ability in the secondary.
With 49-yard and 72-yard touchdown interceptions, Lee tormented Tahoma’s senior quarterback A.C. Gasero, who was replacing injured starter Shane Nelson. Besides the two pick sixes, he also added four pass breakups, one of which was a touchdown saver.
