Connecticut the early leader for Taylor Henry

While the Connecticut Huskies are the early favorite to land the talented Cambridge-South Dorchester quarterback, he admits the far distance is a deterrent.

The recruiting process is still in its infancy stages for Cambridge-South Dorchester quarterback Taylor Henry. Right now the favorites to land Henry are Connecticut, Maryland, and Delaware.

"I liked everything about it," Henry said about his visit to Connecticut. "I'd like to go to school near family and Connecticut is pretty far away so that's the one major drawback."

Last season he threw for over 2,000 yards, 24 touchdowns, and eight interceptions leading his team to a 7-4 record. The reason for his strong numbers is because of his strong mechanics, Henry says.

"I think getting the ball out quick," he said about what he does best. "I can also make quick decisions."

For this upcoming season Henry's expectations are high, but understands they could have some struggles because of all of the seniors that left last season.

"We are going to be very young but I think that if we can play together as a team we should be fine," he said.

With the season quickly approaching, Henry is very focused on trying to avenge last season's 35-19 loss to Parkside.

"I'm really looking forward to playing Parkside in game one," he said. "They talked a bunch of trash to us last year after they beat us so I really want to beat them this year."

He says he plans to make a visit to Maryland soon but it will be interesting to see the amount of interest Henry has for the Terrapins in the future after they received a commitment from three-star quarterback Devin Burns today.

He also said that he is working this off-season on his speed and strength, by doing steps and ladders, "anything to get a little quicker," he says.
