How he got to College Park
Lees’ life and career have been a roller coaster. He grew up in Australia, dropped out of school at 17 and split time between working in construction and playing Australian League football. In 2012, Lees was suspended for 18 months for purchasing, but never taking, a banned substance, but he would return to continue his career.
At age 27, he committed to Maryland, following in the footsteps of countryman kicker Brad Craddock.
