Here’s a breakdown:
Hometown: Charlton, MA
High School: Salisbury School
Weight: 205 lbs
LeBlanc is a little on the light side for a D-lineman, but he more than makes up for it with his speed. The 205-pounder uses his athleticism to shake would-be blockers in pursuit of the football. Here’s a little more info, courtesy of GoRhody:
The Co-Defensive Player of the Year for the Salisbury School as a senior, LeBlanc earned All-Housatonic League and All-New England honors in 2013. He had 42 tackles, including 6.5 sacks and seven tackles for loss. LeBlanc also had one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one blocked field goal. His father, two uncles and two older brothers all played college football.
Great stuff – welcome, Mike!
