Male Athlete of the Week: Ellington’s Leslie

Joe Leslie has been a complete beast for the Ellington-Somers Knights football team.

Aside from being the field general, from being the captain and a senior leader, he is also producing at a seemingly breakneck rate. In his team’s 42-21 win over Enfield last Friday, Leslie accounted for five touchdowns.

Not only did he run for three scores and 101 yards, but he also passed for 136, including one touchdown. He also caught a touchdown pass in the second half when he lined up in the slot.

“Joe Leslie is a great kid,” Ellington-Somers head coach Sean Byrne said. “At the end of the third we put him in at slot back, he will do whatever I ask him to do. He’s all about the team and trying to win and having a good time. He’s a model kid and a model athlete for our program. I’m really happy for his success.”
