Another Side of Leak
September, 30, 2006
After Florida's 28-13 defeat of Alabama, I pulled Chris Leak aside and told him that his 45-yard run -- yes, run -- was the greatest single play of Leak's career. "I'd like to think it would be a pass," Leak said. But Chris was missing the point. What Leak did on that one play in the second quarter was show the world, notably skeptical Gators fans, that a) Leak can be athletic; b) Leak can be emotional; and c) Leak can show leadership qualities.
