Finestpreps.com over the next couple weeks will be launching the Boyz 2 Men series featuring some of the top rising sophomores in the country. What better place to start than Aliquippa, PA?
Aliquippa, PA is the home of many gridiron greats such as Tony Dorsett, Sean Gilbert, Ty Law, Darrelle Revis and recent Chiefs 2nd round draft pick Jonathan Baldwin. The small town is known for churning out some of the top athletes the state of Pennsylvania has to offer.
Along with fellow freshman lineman Jaleel Fields, Henry has made quite the name for himself early in his career. As a freshman Henry pumped out tough yards and showed his home run ability. As a two way starter Henry showed that toting the rock isn’t his only gift. In the Quip defensive backfield Henry showed that age is nothing but a number and made plays throughout the year defensively.
Henry was a major contributor for the Quips in the 2010 campaign as a freshman, leading them to the WPIAL AA Championship at Heinz Field, where they eventually lost to South Fayette.
Henry looks to join the ranks of other Beaver County greats and take his talents to the next level, but for now the Quip nation gets to enjoy this budding star evolve from a boy to a man and lead Aliquippa to a State Championship.
