Leal's outlook: Texas A&M defensive lineman DeMarvin Leal’s breakthrough season wasn’t enough to earn him All-Southeastern Conference honors, which he said didn’t bother him. “I’ve always been kind of [that] counted-out person,” Leal said Tuesday. “I always had some kind of question mark on myself, so I really don’t pay attention to all that. I really don’t. I just keep doing me, and I know what I can do."
