Brian Leaver, a native of Sarasota, Fla., was an All-American kicker who left BGSU with several career records. During his Falcon tenure, he set school career marks for points (247) and extra points made (115) and attempted (118), while tying the record for field goals made, with 44. Leaver shared the place-kicking duties as a freshman in 1991, kicking four PATs in the Falcons' California Raisin Bowl win that year. He became a starter as a sophomore on the 1992 Las Vegas Bowl-winning squad, with the decisive points in victories over Central Michigan and Toledo that fall.

Leaver led the team in scoring both in that `92 season and in `93, and blossomed into a first-team All-America pick by both the Associated Press and Football News as a senior. That December, he appeared on the Bob Hope Christmas Special as a member of the AP team. Leaver, who led the MAC in field goals per game (tie-third in the country) and was second in the league in scoring (fourth in the nation) that year, was a first-team choice to both the All-MAC and Academic All-MAC teams. He finished second in the balloting for the Lou Groza Award in that 1994 campaign, and played in the Kelly Tires Blue-Gray All-Star Football Classic. Leaver still ranks among the top-three on the BGSU career lists for points scored, PATs made and attempted and field goals made.

He was inducted to the BGSU Athletic Hall of Fame in 2006.
