Top RB took in UM/FSU game
Derrick Henry has helped his Yulee High team to a strong start this season. "It is going pretty good we are 4 and 1, 2 and 0 in the district. We had a big win Friday, we are doing pretty good. We have a big game against Bolles for a district championship coming up. The last few games have been a battle, but we are getting the win and that is all that matters." Henry, 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds, traveled to Miami on Saturday night to watch the Canes and Noles. "I went to the Miami/Florida State game Saturday night. It was exciting, it was the first game I got to go to. Plus, they are a big rivalry; they are also my top two schools. I was a good experience how the players got excited for the game." The outcome of the game wasn't something Henry expected and he talked about that. "I was real surprised at the score; I thought it was going to be a battle. They got a big game. Florida State came out fired up and ready to play. That made plays on offense and made tackles on defense." Henry talked about what he believes the Canes need to do to get back on track. "I would probably say play better and just want it more. It seemed like Florida State wanted it more. Florida State's offense came on the field they made plays. They need to play hard and play smarter. Florida State kept going on the field, they wanted to win real bad and they got it, I was impressed with it. It was good for their program and good for Jimbo Fisher." The standout running back prospect, who claims a 3.0 GPA, talked about what he likes about Miami and FSU. "I like the atmosphere, I like the players and the swagger of the school. I like the history of the players. Florida State, I like the coaches, I have built relationship with the coaches. I have been to their camps and workouts. I have had good experiences with both of those schools." So what will be the determining factors a couple years from now when Henry has to make a final choice between the two? "Probably just like a family atmosphere, a team who wants a win and strive for excellence on and off the field."
