General: Has been an offensive boost off the bench for much of his Stanford career seeing action in 45 games with all but one as a reserve ... a physical ball-winner that can shoot from distance with either foot.

As a Junior in 2009: Saw action in 19 games off the bench ... scored three goals and tallied an assist on the season ... scored the only goal of the 1-0 win over UC Irvine in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on a blast from 25 yards (9/22) ... scored in the 33rd minute of a 2-0 win over Santa Clara (9/17) ... sealed a 2-0 win over New Mexico with a goal in the 89th minute (9/27) ... only assist of the season came in a 3-2 win over Air Force (9/25) ... finished with 23 shots on the season, including 11 on goal.

As a Sophomore in 2008: Appeared in 12 games, including one start ... assisted on Taylor Amman's goal in a 4-2 win over Washington (11/7).

As a Freshman in 2007: Scored his first collegiate goal by sneaking a 76th-minute shot past the goalkeeper and into the left corner against Oregon State (10/5) ... assisted on Shaun Culver's first goal, at Washington (11/11) ... proved to be one of team's most dependable reserves.

High School/Club: Captain as a senior at Tamalpais High in Mill Valley, Calif. ... four-year varsity player ... three-time All-Marin County Athletic League selection ... won MCAL titles in 2004 and 2005 ... ODP Region IV player for four years ... won Nike Friendship Cup title with ODP state team ... traveled with Region IV team to Germany in 2005 ... captained San Francisco United (2005-07) and Marin United (2003-04) club teams ... Helped S.F. United to CYSA and Super Y league championships in 2006.

Personal: Son of Julio Leon and Ellen Speiser ... has two brothers, David and Juan ... science technology and society major ... a 2010 honorable mention Pac-10 All-Academic selection.

Bret Simon on Leon: "Daniel continues to improve his game and fitness in preparation for a breakthrough season. He has developed into a more complete player proving in 2009 that he can both score goals and break teams down."
