Henderson Grabs First Offer

Henderson Grabs First Offer

Lakewood (Ohio) St. Edward class of 2015 linebacker Troy Henderson talks about his offer from Toledo and the other schools interested in him.

The St. Edward Eagles always seem to have a roster full of college prospects, and their junior class is particularly strong. This week, another member of that 2015 group joined the offer party as 6-foot-1, 210-pound linebacker Troy Henderson picked up a Toledo offer.

"It was a great feeling," he said. "It was kind of unexpected but I'm very happy I got it and happy to have a D1 offer. It's close to home and I've always liked Toledo as a school."

He added, "I haven't been there for visit or anything, not yet."

After a season in which Henderson had over 100 tackles, eight sacks and three forced fumbles, the Rockets are not expected to be his last offer.

"Last year, in December, I heard to Iowa, Pitt and West Virginia. Last summer, I went to a couple camps, Tennessee, Michigan and Ohio State."

This offer and the college attention has only served to make Henderson want to work harder.

"In the offseason, I want to train every day. Every day I want to do something to get better, lifting, speed training, track, do things to help my performance off the field. I also want to be more of a positive leader for my team, be someone the players can talk to and be a better overall football player."
