Started 10 games at left offensive tackle, but missed the Sacramento State (11/1/08) game with a knee injury. He helped block for an Eagle offense that finished with the seventh-best passing offense in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (299.9 yards per game) and was also 24th in total offense (398.5), 98th in rushing offense (98.5) and 35th in scoring offense (29.4).

2007: Named to the Big Sky Conference All-Academic team. Started once, making the first start of his career in Eastern's opener against Montana-Western (8/31/07). Lettered as a backup on the offensive line. He helped Eastern rank sixth in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (first in the Big Sky) with an average of 462.3 yards per game, including 626 in a 44-15 victory over McNeese State (11/24/07) in the FCS Playoffs.

2006: Redshirted.

HS: Graduated from Gig Harbor HS in 2006. As an offensive lineman, Leahy helped lead his team to a 9-2 record and the State 4A Playoffs. He blocked for 1,000-yard rusher Gary Cole. Leahy was his team's defensive player of the game against South Kitsap, and was a team captain and three-year letter winner. He broke his school's record in the discus with a 162-6 throw, and was part of a State 4A championship in track and field at Gig Harbor in 2005. As a senior, Gig Harbor was second as he won the State 4A discus title (166-4) and placed seventh in the shot put (52-6 1/2). Received a National Football Foundation Hall of Fame Scholar-Athlete award. His former Eagle teammate Matt Alfred (‘03) also attended Gig Harbor.
