Leo is a Sheepshead Bay, New York native and a two-time NEC Defensive Player of the Year. Throughout his five-year career, Leo compiled 234 total tackles, 41 tackles for loss, 13 sacks, and six forced fumbles. He was an All-NEC selection three years in a row.
Listed at 6’4” and 245 pounds in college, he was also an FCS All-American multiple times.
Sports Illustrated gave Leo the following description:
“A hybrid pass-rusher who has switched between defensive end and linebacker; Leo currently plays in four-point stance at the seven-technique spot. He has shown a big time knack for creating game-changing turnovers throughout his career.”
Coincidentally, Leo was a teammate at Wagner of current Colts’ defensive tackle Chris Williams.
