Desert Oasis HS LB Kyle Henry (Las Vegas, NV) is still looking for that first offer, but a number of schools have shown some level of interest, including Boise State. Boise State and others want to see film from his first two games before possibly extending an offer. So, that means the talented LB is working even harder with that thought in mind.

"Our first two games just happen to be the toughest on the schedule," he said. "It'll be difficult, but I think I'm up to the challenge," he added.

"Boise State, UNR, UNLV, San Diego State, Fresno State, Northern Arizona, and San Jose State have all asked me to send tape from my first two games," he stated. "All of them said they want to see my first two games and go from there."

"I went to San Jose and did a two hour workout with their LB Coach," said Henry. "I also went to a Senior Day at UNR and then at UNLV too. I didn't get to see much of the campus at San Jose, but I liked UNR a lot. I was real impressed with their academics and everything. I'd say I was more impressed with UNR, but I liked UNLV too."

Boise State Assistant Coach Scott Huff has kept in contact with Henry over the past couple months.

"I emailed Coach Huff my schedule about two weeks ago," he said. "He emailed me back and said they'd be coming to one of my games."

"I'd say all of the schools are showing about the same level of interest," he said. "I'm still hoping that first offer will be from Boise State."

Henry (6'0, 210, 4.6) and his teammates open the season with Bishop Gorman in early September. Those who follow HS football know that Bishop Gorman is one of the top teams in the country year-in and year-out. With that thought in mind, Henry knows they have a stiff challenge awaiting them.

"We'll probably start game-planning next Monday. We have to come in and be prepared," said Henry. "We're going to have to be aggressive out there and continue to get better at our pass coverage. They didn't run on us much last year, but they tore us apart with the passing game."

"Expectations are real high for us this year," he said. "We had a real young team last year and overachieved, so we think this should be a good year for us."

To say Henry has a "nose for the ball" would be an understatement as he racked up 144 tackles as a junior. In this case, the old saying "practice makes perfect" would be quite fitting.

"Our coach spends hours with us teaching us how to read a specific play," he said. "I've practiced it so much that I can now tell where the ball is going as soon as it's snapped," he added.
