Monte Lee: From Cougar to Tiger 3RIPLE 3HREAT

    • Sports

On this week's episode of the 3RIPLE 3HREAT podcast, Jermel interviews Head Baseball Coach of the Clemson Tigers Baseball Team, Monte Lee! Monte previously coached at his alma mater (and where he first met Jermel) College of Charleston. Growing up Monte was a well-rounded athlete partcipating in baseball, soccer, football, basketball and wrestling at different parts of his life. Injuries dictated what sports he could participate in leaving baseball as a safe option. We are sure many athletes can relate to needing to choose a specific sport due to certain injuries. Obviously, Monte's experience in the athletic world has molded the way he coaches. For example, "I’ve used that experience from my recruiting in recruiting kids in my 20+ years coaching. Who wants you the most? It’s not necessarily the school or the program. It’s the coach that’s recruiting you. Are they recruiting you harder than everybody else because they really want you to come play for them? They’re probably going to give you the best opportunity."
Tune into the 3RIPLE 3HREAT podcast to hear about The Ultimate Student-Athlete Experience: stories about student-athletes, for student-athletes and by student-athletes!

Our DAE Foundation message is to bring quality information to student-athletes, parents of student-athletes and the community that supports them both. There is a wealth of knowledge being shared in our interviews with stories from former collegiate players, professional athletes, collegiate coaches, sports agents and more.
