Dylan Lee, one of the best athletes playing football anywhere in Kentucky, has his Raiders thinking championship @DylanLee36 @Ryle_Football @RAIDERSPORTSNKY @unionraidersfb @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @KyHighFootball @MaxPreps @840WHAS

Dylan Lee, Ryle Raiders WR/DB

’26 WR/DB had an incredible sophomore season playing ‘Big Boy’ football (6A)

Dylan Lee is a WR/DB who also plays basketball and runs track. By running track, we mean he is an 11.3-second, 100-meter guy who has been laser timed at 4.60-seconds at 40-yards. All track times are fully automated, so there you go. Lee was seventh (7th) in 6A in yards receiving in ’23, eighth (8th) in receiving TDs, and contributed offensively, defensively, and on special teams where he blocked a pair of FGs. In an offseason where we have chosen versatility as a characteristic to feature, this guy may take the freaking cake.

Dylan Lee Hudl Highlights

Ryle High is a power in high school football. The team made the finals in ’06 and yearly factors into the playoff picture at its level of play (6A).

The Raiders generally make deep runs. They lost the Regional Championship game to Lexington’s Bryan Station so the tradition held true.

Ryle High School was founded in 1992 and was named in honor of Larry A. Ryle. Ryle was a superintendent, administrator, and teacher over the course of his distinguished career in education.

Coach Mike Engler has been manning the controls of the Raiders’ ship. Engler is doing a fine job. Like we said above, the Raiders are perennial factors in the playoff race at the 6A level of competition.

Of course, to be competitive a program needs talent. Dylan Lee is quite a talent.

The 6’1.5,” 165-pounder is a three-sport varsity star…playing basketball, football, and running track

The 6’1.5,” 165-pounder is a three-sport varsity stalwart at the 6A, District 6 high school. Lee plays basketball and football in addition to being a sprinter on the track team.

By sprinter, we mean this kid can blaze. Many of you will have no idea how fast this really is but not many sophomores across Kentucky can boast of registering 11.3-second, 100-meter times or clipping off 40-yard dashes in a fully automated 4.60-seconds.

Lee was not only fast in ’23 for the Raiders football team but super productive and in multiple phases. Lee caught 45-passes for close to 800-yards (782) with 10 receiving TDs. Lee registered 27-tackles, an INT, a FR, and blocked a pair of FGs.

Lee started on both sides of the football. Did we mention he plays 6A?

We have no idea what tremendous feats will be accomplished by Lee over the course of his junior season in ’24. The “junior year” is the one where players generally make their largest developmental leaps. That would be pretty scary; the thought Lee might be substantially better in ’24 than he was in ’23.

Scary thought for Raider opponents going forward: Lee might be substantially better in ’24 than he was in ’23

We know this is a kid who should be on plenty of recruiting boards across Kentucky. Can’t coach speed; you either are fast or you aren’t. This kid is a burner and he will only get faster.

Better right that number down recruiters. There will be plenty of competition for this guy’s signature.
