After failing to make the grade at Hawthorn, where he played just one night game, Scott Lee was cleared to Central District. Tough, nuggety and always sublimely composed, he was a resounding success in South Australia, both with the Bulldogs, and with Adelaide, where he played 86 AFL games, mainly in the back pocket, between 1991 and 1995. At Centrals he played a total of 243 SANFL games and kicked 107 goals between 1985 and 1990, in 1992, and from 1994 to 2000. He won the club's best and fairest award in 1987 and 1990, and was chosen in a back pocket in the Bulldogs' official 'Best All Time Team 1964 to 2003'. Lee represented his adopted state of South Australia five times.
