Major League fisher and two-time Bassmaster Classic champion Jordan Lee has at least two loves in his life: fishing and Auburn. Lee and his father, in fact, are both Auburn alumni.

“It’s just a place that I’ve always loved,” Lee said on The DA Show. “I went to school at Auburn and got to see some iconic [games].”

Lee was in attendance for the “Kick Six” game in 2013, when Auburn beat Alabama 34-28 on the final play. Chris Davis fielded a missed field goal and ran 109 yards for the game-winning score.

“I was right there,” Lee said. “Cam Newton was coming in, there was a lot of stuff that happened – it was a fun couple of years there sports-wise. All I can remember is goosebumps. When he caught it and he started running it back, rushing the field, the whole nine yards – I just remember being out on the field and everybody was going nuts. It was incredible.”

Lee, an Alabama native, doesn’t just love Auburn’s football team. He loves the community.

“It’s the town, it’s the people – it’s just a cool town,” he said. “It’s kind of got a small-town feel to it, but you got a lot going on. The tradition there is pretty special, which it is in a lot of college football stadiums. The eagle flying in, there’s just a lot of tradition there. It’s a great place.”

Lee, unsurprisingly, isn’t fond of Nick Saban and Alabama.

“I wouldn’t say I hate them, but I don’t know how to explain it,” he said. “I dislike a lot of Alabama fans, and some of them are my really good friends. During football season, we’re not friends. But after, we’re all good. But they’re just so good, man. It sucks. Saban, he’s got a dynasty. It’s just tough to deal with in the same state. It’s just tough. It’s brutal, but we get through it somehow. Whenever we beat them, it’s like we won the national championship.”
