In addition to earning MVP honors in the BCS National Championship Game played in January 2007 -- Florida's first of two BCS titles under Urban Meyer, Leak served as the Gators' team captain for two years and broke several school passing records set by upcoming Hall of Fame inductee Danny Wuerffel.
