AC Leonard is having one of the rarest seasons for the Green and Gold in modern CFL history.
At a time when players are virtually exclusive to one side of the ball, the Edmonton Elks defensive lineman has made an impact on both offense and defense.
While he continues to be one of the top pass-rushers in the game, wrapping up opposing quarterbacks for 10 sacks so far this season, he has also caught passes, even taking one into the endzone for the Green and Gold.
