Former Pirate Leach Headed To 3rd Pro Bowl

Baltimore Ravens fullback and former ECU Pirate Vonta Leach has been selected to start in his 3rd career Pro Bowl.

Leach has been crushing opposing defenders again this season, including a memorable block in which he put Steelers nose tackle Casey Hampton on his back. He’s helped pave the way for Baltimore’s ground game, and has been more of a weapon as a receiver this season than in years past.

Leach has 20 catches for 141 yards (second most of his career) and he scored his first touchdown since 2008 this season. While Leach had a tough time getting on the field early in the season with Baltimore’s hurry-up offense, he found his way back on with his physical play.
