12/30/13 - 2013 AFCA FCS COACHES' ALL-AMERICA TEAM: DB T.J. Lee III, Sr., Eastern Washington,...A pair of Eastern Washington University football players from the state of Washington - wide receiver Cooper Kupp and cornerback T.J. Lee III - have been selected to the American Football Coaches Association NCAA Football Championship Subdivision All-America team. A national committee of FCS coaches selects the prestigious 25-member squad. Lee, a three-time All-Big Sky Conference first team selection from Seattle (West Seattle HS ’09), is one of 17 seniors on the squad, which has been selecting All-America teams since 1945. - Eastern Washington football
12/30/13 - 2013 ALL-BIG SKY FIRST TEAM (COACHES): CB TJ Lee III, Sr., Eastern Washington,...Little did his parents know that T.J. Lee III would stand for three-peat. The Eastern Washington University cornerback headlined a list of 25 Eagles honored on the All-Big Sky Conference team on Tuesday (Nov. 26) by earning first team honors for the third-straight season. The 2009 graduate of West Seattle High School became only the third Eagle in school history - and the first on defense -- to accomplish that feat. In fact, only 45 total players in the 50-year history of the league have earned three first team accolades, as well as another three who have four-peated.
“T.J. has been incredible,” said Eastern head coach Beau Baldwin. “In this conference with such a rich history and the competition you are up against every week -- and the competition that exists for these awards -- to be recognized as a three-time first team All-Big Sky player is hard to do. He’s gone out and earned it. He’s second on our team in tackles and cornerbacks don’t usually make a lot of tackles.” Lee now has 238 tackles (16th in school history), four interceptions, 23 passes broken up and 3 1/2 sacks in his 46-game career (32 starts). He owns sole possession of the school record for most career forced fumbles with seven, and his 23 passes broken up ranks seventh. - EWU football
07/31/13 - 2013 BIG SKY PRESEASON ALL-CONFERENCE TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): CB T.J. Lee III Sr., Seattle, Wash., Eastern Washington...Lee earned All-America honors in 2012 from The Sports Network (second team), and was also honored on the College Sporting News “Fabulous 50” All-America squad. Lee also was a first team All-Big Sky selection for the second-straight season. He ranked third on the team with 90 tackles and finished with 11 passes broken up to rank 10th in school history. His average of 6.4 tackles per game ranked 29th in the Big Sky and his total of 11 passes broken up were second. He also had 2 1/2 sacks, nine total tackles for loss, an interception, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.
A two-time first team All-Big Sky selection, Lee now has 149 tackles, three interceptions, 14 passes broken up and 2 1/2 sacks in his 34-game career. He is just 51 tackles from becoming the 34th Eagle in school history to finish with 200 career tackles. He needs just four passes broken up to rank on EWU’s top 10 list in that category. - Eastern Washington football
10/13/12 - Dylan Zylstra blocked a punt early in the fourth quarter that Evan Day recovered for a touchdown, Jordan Tonani returned an interception for another score 59 seconds later and Eastern Washington beat Montana State 27-24 on Saturday night. "We were on a safe-punt look and not really looking to rush, but we give the option to take a shot and Dylan (Zylstra) took that shot," Eastern Washington coach Beau Baldwin said. Less than a minute and just three plays later, Tonani jumped a route, intercepting DeNarius McGhee's pass and running 21 yards down the sideline for a score that made it 27-17. "DeNarius (McGhee) is the one the best players I've seen in this conference," Baldwin said of the Montana State quarterback. "We do everything we can to make it difficult for him and eventually, hopefully we can get something." Montana State (6-1, 3-1 Big Sky) scored with 2:38 to play on a 2-yard pass from McGhee to John Ellis and got the ball back with 1:38 to go, but they turned it over on downs at their own 23 after three straight sacks by the Eastern Washington defense. - AP Sports
