— By Tim Stephens, West Virginia Sports Writers Association Carl Lee said he is happy Huntington High School's Zah Jackson won the award as premier defensive back in West Virginia. 'It would be better, though, if he won it and played for me,' Lee, head coach at South Charleston High, said with a laugh. Jackson is the 2022 winner of the Carl Lee Award, named for the former Marshall University and NFL star. The award is presented by the West Virginia Sports Writers Association. Lee played safety for 11 seasons with the Minnesota Vikings and one with the New Orleans Saints and was a three-time All-Pro.
