Following graduation from McKinney High School, Leonard attended the University of Texas at San Antonio on a full athletic scholarship and was a member of the first football team in the university’s history. During his time at UTSA, he started all 46 games of his career at center and made the Rimington Trophy watch list, an award that honors the best Division I center in the nation. His 46 consecutive starts hold the record for the most starts and most consecutive starts of any player in the program’s history. In 2014, Leonard was one of 17 finalists for the William V. Campbell Trophy, which recognizes the most impactful student-athlete in college football.
During his time at UTSA, Leonard made some notable achievements off the football field, as well. From 2011 to 2012, Leonard wrote a weekly blog for the Huffington Post titled “Diary of a College Football Player,” which chronicled the trials and tribulations of a Division I student-athlete.

In 2014, Leonard wrote an article for SportIllustrated.com, and, in that same year, earned the UTSA All-Sport Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award and the Conference USA Football Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award.
In 2015, Leonard graduated summa cum laude with a 3.99 GPA and a Bachelor’s of Science in Physical Education and a minor in Business Administration. Most recently, Leonard was the Running Backs/Tight-Ends coach at Seguin High School, and, before that, was the Offensive Line Coach at San Antonio Memorial High School. Coach Leonard is excited to come to Reagan as the Offensive Line Coach for the four-time consecutive district champion Rattlers. Coach Leonard will also be responsible for the JV soccer program.
