Leak combines a cannon arm with excellent mobility and awesome accuracy. The offense he runs at Independence is perfect for his style of play. His brother currently plays quarterback at Tennessee and Leak has said for some time that he’d love to back him up. However, Tennessee will have to hold off 50 other programs for the services of Leak. His 51 touchdown passes in a season is one of many state records he holds and by the end of the summer he should have more than 40 offers.
