My name is Chris Henson and since I was six years old I have been involved in competitive baseball teams. I have played from YMCA tee ball to high-end Select and All-Star teams. When I was in 8th grade, I played my first season of junior high football. I instantly fell in love with the speed, aggression, and brotherhood of being on the football field. Playing baseball placed a competitive desire in me that shaped me into the player I am. Although baseball was my first love, football soon became my passion. I am still actively involved in the baseball program with the THESA Riders where I start on Varsity in center field.
I have grown up in a private Christian school where I have earned the Honorable Character award and am currently apart of the National Honor Society. I work hard and am beginning to hit both my academic and athletic stride. My latest report card was a 3.91 GPA for the semester and I made varsity football as a 15-year-old sophomore.
My first season of football was junior high. I played football from 8th-10th grade with the THESA Riders, which runs a six-man football program. Although six-man football is uncommon, it changes the game to rely on speed and open field tackling. I played wide receiver and safety with THESA throughout my time with them. As a sophomore, I made varsity football to primarily play safety because of my ability to make open field tackles. Sadly, I broke my hand and sat out a majority of that season. THESA is one of the most respected six-man teams in the nation and is known for aggression and toughness.
Beginning in 2018, I played for Legacy Classical Christian Academy where I played quarterback and safety. This was the football program's first year. As you can imagine, we were young and had a rough season. As a junior made 101 total tackles on defense, and offensively had 998 total yards. (All other stats from this season are posted) I was selected TCAF Div 2. Second team All-state Defensive back and TCAF Div. 2 All-District offensive MVP.
Overall, I believe that my hard work in the classroom, my passion for the sport, and my competitive nature are all solid reasons why you should consider me for your future roster.
