The Jim Leonhard Award is given to the top senior defensive back as part of the WSN Senior Football Awards. The award is named after former Flambeau High School and University of Wisconsin athlete Jim Leonhard, who has gone on to great success in the NFL with the Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets, and Denver Broncos.
The pre-season list has been trimmed down to 16 semi-finalists, with five finalists chosen after the Level 1 playoffs. Winners are announced the week of the state finals.
