The flying squirrel.

Leonardo Colimerio

 
 

At 6’6” 185lbs, junior guard Leonardo Colimerio is a dual threat to score and distribute as he floats through the lane. He is a lethal player who attacks the rim with the same tenacity & ferocity he approaches defense. With his amazing court-vision & strong passing, it gives him just enough room to work his flying magic while his up-tempo style unleashes Tigers’ fury.

#23 // Guard

 
 

Leo is one of the most athletic players I have had the privilege to coach. He has great court vision and is one of the best passers on the team. He can shoot the ball and he is great at getting in the lane to create a scoring opportunity for his teammates. Very unselfish, and finds more joy in the success of others than himself.

Off the Court

 
 

Leo is from São José dos Campos, São Paulo (SP), Brazil. He has 1 older brother. His parents are Carlos and Janice Colimério.

São José dos Campos is a city in southeast Brazil. To the north, São Francisco Xavier is a mountainous area with the Atlantic forest and the Roncador Waterfall.

Off the court, Leo likes to play videos games, spend time with his family, and go out with his friends. His favorite food is feijoada, a typical Brazilian food and his favorite drink is strawberry lemonade.

Leo’s goals are to get a degree from a good university and become a professional basketball player. He also wants to be successful in his life outside of playing ball so he can give his family a better life.

Since childhood, Leo’s parents always taught him that nothing in life comes so easily and that work, a good education, and respect for others make us better people. He values his family very much and, even more, the moments that he’s able to spend with them. It is an important pillar in his education and in his daily life.
