Lee impressive as All-Star

Tucson, AZ (WAFB) -

Former LSU quarterback Jarrett Lee is smiling again after throwing two touchdown passes in Monday night's Casino del Sol College All-Star game in Tucson, Arizona.

Lee came off the bench to direct an 89-yard first quarter scoring drive for Houston Nutt's Stars team for a 14-0 lead over the Stripes in a game that once was called the Blue-Gray All-Star Classic.

It was the first meaningful playing time for Lee since LSU's 9-6 overtime victory against Alabama on November 5 and came exactly one week after Lee spent the entire BCS Championship game on the bench in the Tide's 21-0 Superdome victory.

Lee threw touchdown passes to William & Mary's Alex Gottlieb and SMU's Rich Rossi, but his Stars team came up three points short in a 24-21 Stripes' victory.

Lee says he had interviews this week with the Patriots, Packers and Seahawks, among other NFL teams that had scouts attending practice sessions during the week.
