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."
