Bellevue (Wash.) offensive lineman Marcus Henry has his Wolverines headed back the Tacoma Dome for the state semifinals. Bellevue beat league rival Liberty 35-0 in the quarterfinals this past weekend to advance. A stark contrast to their regular season match up, when Bellevue won by just seven.
“Tonight the big difference was preparation and energy,” said Henry. “Last time we came out flat. This time we came out prepared and got it done.”
Henry, who plays mainly on the offensive line, generated huge push for the defensive line in short yardage situations.
“I love to play defensive line,” said Henry. “I love to come in and make a play.”
Henry, who is being recruited to play offensive line, is committed to Boise State over an offer from Army.
“I got the feeling that they really wanted me,” said Henry. “I also felt like they would take care of me”
Henry plans on getting over to Boise, but not until his high school season has wrapped up.
“I went over for an unofficial visit before the season,” said Henry. “I’ll take an official after the season sometime.”
For now, Henry is focused on leading his team to a third straight state title. Something he has a simple solution for.
“The main thing is to execute and play our game.”
