MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - The countdown to Varsity Zone is on!

Arizona's Family kicks off our high school football coverage on Aug. 23. In the meanwhile, we are on a quest to bring you as many high school football stories in the Valley.

We stopped at Desert Ridge High School earlier this month but we wanted to spotlight senior wide receiver Aidan Lee.

WATCH: High school football standout plays for his father

Lee is a star player for the Jaguars. He has offers to multiple Division I schools including the University of Cal, Berkley.

But his performance on the field isn't Lee's only priority. After practice, Lee tends to his younger siblings to help his mother out. His father, Allen Lee, has been in and out doctors' offices and hospitals because of his diabetes.

But nothing will keep Allen from missing his son's first game of the season on Friday, Aug. 23.
