Default Harrison Leonard - Walk-on Kicker

Guy is getting some attention at camp.

The most significant transformation that Harrison Leonard insists he has made since the last time Notre Dame head football coach Brian Kelly saw him in person seven months ago has to do with a book about tennis.

Which is quite an assertion, given that the 5-foot-11 kicker from Jamestown, R.I., has powered up to the tune of 28 pounds, to 208, since taking his official recruiting visit to ND and connecting with Irish director of football performance Matt Balis for the first time.

“My kickoffs are deeper,” he said in a telephone interview this week. “The ball just comes off my foot a lot more strongly.”

His greatest strength, however, is above the eyebrows, he said, thanks in part to “The Inner Game of Tennis,” a book authored by Harvard English Lit major-turned tennis pro Tim Gallwey and originally released in 1972, roughly three decades before Leonard was born.
