#39 TOM LEONG, Running Back - Junior, 6-0, 210


With the lack of depth at running back, Leong could step right in and see a lot of playing time this season. A good blocker he will be utilized in short yardage situations. Cope would like to see him improve his physical conditioning and stamina. Definitely in the hunt for a No.2 running back job behind Kirby Warren. A fullback at Laney College, he earned All-Golden Gate Conference accolades as a sophomore and helped lead them to GGC title.


High School: 1980 graduate of Alameda High School. Led the Alameda County Athletic League in rushing and scoring and paced the team to an undefeated league title in 79. Was all-league and team MVP.


Personal: Full name, Thomas K. Leong. Age 20 (11/29/62). Born Berkeley, CA. Undeclared major. Cousin Kaul Napoleon runs track at University of Hawaii.
