Gilbert Leading Edge Academy Jr. Leon | Hardwood Lion King....One To Watch!

Jr. Leon_Final

Whether hitting game-tying shots to send games into second and third overtimes or double-clutch shots to win games at the last second, the Spartans of Gilbert's Leading Edge Academy have a sure winner at the point-guard position with Jr. Leon.  The Spartans finished the regular season 13-8, 8-4 in the 2A Metro South Region.   

Leon is one to watch and he is just a Junior.   Already receiving offers from various schools at all levels of play, it will not be a surprise when even more offers begin to pour in for this very versatile player.   Leon brings to the hardwood an incredible balance between scoring and passing.    As the ultimate team player he will pass the ball as a true facilitator but he will definitely not shy away from turning on a scoring attack when it counts the most.

On February 11th, during the 1st playoff game against Wilcox, Leon scored 27 points, 8 assists, 5 rebounds and 2 steals.  The Spartans now move on to the 2A Sweet Sixteen where they will face Gilbert Christian Academy.

Leon is one to watch and true to his last name translated into English, he is a Lion on the hardwood.
