During his career, Jimmy Lee proved himself to be an outstanding pass catcher and shattered all Hampden-Sydney receiving records during his career.  He still ranks among the school's top-five leaders in career receptions, with 122, and in receiving yards, with 1,474.  As a sophomore, he established a new school record for receptions, with 42, and receiving yards, with 485.  He broke both records the next season with 45 receptions and 564 yards.

Lee had a career game as a sophomore, setting two records which still stand.  He caught ten passes, a mark which has since been equaled three times but never surpassed.  He also recorded 200 receiving yards in that game, a record that still stands.  Also a solid baseball player, Lee served as team captain and was named MVP as a senior.

Lee was awarded the Gammon Cup at his graduation in 1968.  Lee and his wife Charlene live in Richmond, where he is the president of IOS Associates, Inc., a computer consulting and support company.
