Raatz Presents Resolution to Memphis Lee at the Statehouse

STATEHOUSE (Feb. 8, 2022) — State Sen. Jeff Raatz (R-Richmond) presented Senate Concurrent Resolution 24 to Memphis Lee for being named 'High School Man Of The Year" by the Indianapolis Colts. He was recognized for his character, leadership and teamwork on and off the field.

Lee is a senior attending Centerville Senior High School, where he has been a three-year starter on the Centerville football team's offensive and defensive line. He was voted team captain this year for his extraordinary leadership and teamwork. Even though he has grown up facing family and financial hurdles, he never let it get in the way of helping others.

When Lee is not playing football he is volunteering with the Community in Schools program where he helps distribute food to students in need. He is also the head of the football team's community service program, where they help the community with numerous charitable acts.

Before presenting Lee with the resolution, Raatz had the pleasure of welcoming Lee, his coach, superintendent, and some of his teammates to the state capital. They were all given a tour of the Statehouse and also met with Gov. Holcomb and State Rep. Brad Barrett (R-Richmond).

"It was a pleasure to meet and present Memphis with this resolution," Raatz said. "I am proud of him and his accomplishments. Memphis is a true inspiration to everyone he meets, and I cannot wait to see him continue his football career as well as his community service activities. He is going to do great things."
