Coach Alonzo Lee
After 31 exciting years on the sideline, Coach Lee joined the Fellowship of Christian Athletes where he is now enjoying changing the perspective of the coaches on the sideline through mentoring. Coaching has been a ministry for years and being able to share that ministry with other coaches and players is a great challenge.
Over his career, Lee has proven that defense does indeed win championships. Lee has won seven MEAC Championships at four different schools over his 31-year collegiate coaching career. At three of those schools – North Carolina A&T, Hampton and Morgan State – Lee served as the defensive coordinator. In 7 out of the last 12 seasons, Lee’s defenses have been in the top ten in the country. He also had an outstanding career as an assistant coach at Howard University and Florida A&M.
Lee began his volunteer work with FCA at Howard University in 1984, and has worked with FCA huddles at all five universities. He is very proud of the outstanding gospel choirs they had at Hampton University and at North Carolina A&T.
Before returning to N.C. A&T, Lee was the defensive coordinator at Morgan State University for three seasons. His greatest highlight while at Morgan State University was becoming a deacon at Ebenezer Baptist Church.
A native of Washington, DC, Lee graduated from Dunbar Senior High School in Washington, DC.
In 1977, Lee attended Eastern Illinois University, where he participated in two NCAA Division II National Championship games, winning one in 1978.
He graduated from Eastern Illinois in 1982 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Therapeutic Recreation. Born January 15, 1958, Lee and his wife, Severia, have one daughter Lacretcia and four sons, Alonzo Jr., Vernon, Joshua and Jamil.
