Leuta burst onto the national rugby scene in early 2015 when he attended a recruitment camp at the Olympic Training Site in Chula Vista, Calif. Previously, he played a few games with Cal State Monterey Bay whilst attending Monterey Peninsula College. After catching the attention of high performance staffers, Leuta was included in the developmental USA Men's Falcons squad and made his debut during the 2014-15 HSBC Sevens Series at the Hong Kong Sevens tournament.

Missing the cut for Team USA's Rio 2016 Olympic Summer Games due to injury, Leuta was named to the Men's Selects team (15s) that played in the inaugural Americas Pacific Challenge at the developmental level in October of 2016. Nearly one month later, when the Men's Eagles announced their roster for the November Test Series, Leuta was added to the mix and earned his first international cap against Romania.

Leuta returned to sevens during the 2016-17 HSBC World Sevens Series at the Dubai Sevens tournament.
