Calvin Lee is the only Willamette Athlete to be a two-time first-team NAIA All-American being selected as a linebacker in 1968 and 1969. He was also a three-time all-Northwest Conference performer during his three years at Willamette. Lee, one of the feared players ever to don a Bearcat uniform, was a key ingredient in Willamette's NAIA Division II semifinal team that finished 9-1 and was ranked as high as No. 3 in the country. The linebacker led WU to the Pacific Northwestís best defensive squad, limiting opponents to 181.7 yards per game. The Bearcats defense was ranked No. 6 in the NAIA against the run that year at 60.0 yards per game. Lee is now the head football coach at St. Louis High School in Honolulu, which has won six straight Hawaii state championships heading into the 1992 season.
