An athletic left-footer, Leo Barry was recruited from Deniliquin, NSW, as a zone selection in 1994 and made his senior debut in 1995. He was named the Swans’ most improved player in 2001 and by 2003 was acknowledged as one of the AFL’s elite half-backs. He represented Australia in the 2003 International Rules Series, and in 2004 earned All-Australian selection and finished third in the Swans Club Champion count. However, it was in 2005 that “Leaping Leo” wrote himself into Swans folklore with his magnificent game-saving mark in the Grand Final. He became a premiership player in the same year that he earned his second All-Australian selection. Leo Barry was Co-Captain of the Sydney Swans from 2006 to 2008. He retired at the conclusion of the 2009 season, having played 237 games and kicked 56 goals.
