Laramie, Wyo. -
Brian Lee, a native of Arvada, Colo., was a consensus All-American, named to the Football Writers of America, Football News, Walter Camp Football Foundation, and Associated Press First Teams in 1997. During that season with Lee at free safety, the Pokes defense was the sixth-best in the country in pass defense and set a school record 24 interceptions. Lee is the school record holder for career interceptions with 17 and set the single-season record of eight twice in 1996 and '97. He also shares the single-game record of three interceptions in a game, having done that once in 1996 and '97. His 0.73 interceptions per game led the NCAA Division I during his senior season. Lee was also named First Team Academic All-American in 1997 becoming the first and only Cowboy to earn both First Team Academic and First Team All-American. He was also an Academic All-WAC performer in 1995, '96 and '97. In 1998, Lee won the Admiral Land Award as UW's top student-athlete. Wyoming football's annual Scholar-Athlete award is given in Lee's honor.
