DeSales RB takes part in first-ever "questions" segment

Each week, will be getting to know a new student-athlete from the area by asking him/her a series of 20 key questions - some in-depth, some lighthearted - that will provide insight into the thoughts and personalities of the boys and girls who are doing great things on and off the local courts, fields, tracks, and courses. Below are the "20 Key Questions," brought to you by Key Financial Mortgage LLC.

This week, "20 Questions" features DeSales High School running back Garrit Leicht. One of the state's top backs, Leicht has the Colts off to a 2-1 start in the 2010 season and has already accumulated 229 rushing yards and four touchdowns in three games. He is a leader for his team and excels in the classroom with close to a 4.0 GPA and an exemplary score on his ACT, which will undoubtedly make Leicht a hot recruit by season's end.

Leicht and DeSales will take on Catholic rival Holy Cross on Friday. Check back to for full coverage of the game.
