The preseason high school football All-Southern Arizona team continues today with No. 15 on our list of 22 players.

Check out a video clip on KVOA (Channel 4) tonight at 10.

The team was chosen by the Arizona Daily Star and the staff at KVOA and will be revealed daily through next Sunday.

Dylan Leahy • Lb/RB • 5-10, 170 • Palo Verde, Senior

• Who he is: Great on the grind, Leahy's style was more bruiser than blazer as a crucial component of the Titans' run deep into the 4A-II state playoffs in coach Todd Mayfield's last season in 2009. He is back as the featured asset in the Titans offense.

• Proof he is good: Leahy amassed 1,161 yards on the ground in 2009 despite basically splitting carries with now-departed Deshawn Hill, who totaled 1,137 yards of his own. Leahy averaged 8.5 yards per carry last year and found the end zone 15 times.

• How he shines: Leahy owns a flair for the massive outburst. Evidence: as a junior, Leahy posted two 200-plus yard games. He went off for 222 yards on just 12 carries against Peoria Liberty, including four scores. And he also posted 205 yards on 12 touches against Sahuarita, along with two trips to the end zone.
