Lee Powell always had a great love for sport beginning during his basketball playing days in high school. He taught high school science in many schools throughout Texas but always his first love was any type of sports. Very early on he began to referee basketball, softball and of course, his favorite, volleyball. He loved the game, the athletes, the coaches and his volleyball family, both locally and throughout the U.S. It always made him very happy and he enjoyed every minute until he became unable to continue refereeing. Even though finally he couldn't participate in games, he was so proud to complete his tests and clinics online just this last August 8th. Lee was a professional, dedicated referee who genuinely gave his all to the sport he loved.
