lex is among the best offensive players in the history of the garnet and grey. During his career from 2002 to 2007, he was an OUA East second team all-star three times while cumulating 1,207 points. McLeod moved on to become a lawyer after graduating from the faculty of law of uOttawa.
My fondest memory of the time on the team is the relationships that I built that I continue to have with my teammates. All of the hours we spent together in practice, on the road and in class. They were and are my family, and I have good relationships with most of them still.
They would be surprised that this last year I was in the musical performance of beauty and the beast in Lindsay. We raised over $45,000.00 for our local theatre.
I went on to become a Lawyer and now I am a Federal Crown Attorney for the Central East Region.
My wife inspires me the most. She is a beautiful person both inside and out. She is a teacher and a mother and exceptional at both.
I am most proud of my family. This includes my Gee-Gee family. Their accomplishments and my relationship with them.
It is incredibly difficult to maintain both academic standards and athletic ability as a student-athlete, much more difficult than outsiders know. Often times there was studying at 1:00am on the bus on the way home from a road trip. That being said our team was provided with great tutors and academics was identified as extremely important. That being said, the balance of maintaining both continues to help me in my day to day functions.
If I could offer advice it would be to cherish every minute that a player has during his career, the hard times and good times will make for great stories after you graduate. And remember to maintain the relationships with your teammates even after you graduate. The Gee-Gees family always looks out for each other.
