FAIRMONT — Going out with a bang.

East Fairmont’s all-around football standout Chris Leonard is making his senior season count.

The two-year starter at both defensive end and offensive guard plays football with an attitude, while trying to make a mark in his senior season.

“I want people to remember me as a person who doesn't take anything from anybody,” said Leonard. “Even if the opposing team is bigger, faster or stonger than us, I want to leave an imprint on that team. I want to show them that the little guys can play and can win.”

Leonard added, “Whatever you do, leave it all on the field. You always try to think that they are trying to harm your family. You have to get pumped for every game. Listening to music and getting pumped is how to get prepared for the game. I try to visualize what I do before I do it.”
