Mike Henry Is a Potential Football Walk-on

Mike Henry, a 6-foot-3, 235-pound linebacker from Iowa Western (IA) CC, is a potential walk-on candidate for the Minnesota Gopher football team. He could join familiar face Ed Olson Jr. who he played with at Mahtomedi High.

Mike Henry helped lead Zephyrs to a 6-6 mark as a senior, losing to Northfield 21-13 in the state quarterfinals. The record is misleading as they had to forfeit five games due to using an ineligible player. He played alongside Ed Olson Jr., who was a redhirt freshman and his younger Tommy, who has committed to Minnesota.

Henry helped lead Iowa Western to a 5-4 mark as a freshman. He was amed Academic All-Region XI 1st Team.
