Recipe for Success?

Fred Lee knows his way around a kitchen. Alex Neutz knows business. The two UB wide receivers and roommates could be cooking up a future after football.

"We have conversations about everything," Lee said. "Life after football, that's the biggest thing. We don't know what we want to do. Neutz wants to open a restaurant, I want to start a school, but we want to work together and be business partners. He's getting an MBA and I'm a chef at a restaurant now and going to get my psychology degree so we'll figure it out."

Lee, formerly a fixture at Taco Bell, is a chef at The U, located on Maple Road next to the AMC Theaters.

"I'm the head chef there now," Lee said. "I started in the offseason and during the year sometimes we get off, like on a Thursday, I go there. But I got a staff so I let them take over my spot a little bit during football until I come back. It's exciting."
