Interest In Pitt Picks Up For Henry

Pitt has had a nice history with Aliquippa, mainly with three former Quips going to Pitt and becoming first-round picks in the last 20 years (Sean Gilbert, Darrelle Revis, Jon Baldwin). Dravon Henry looks to keep the tradition going.

Last season, in helping Aliquippa to a 14-1 record, a trip to the state semifinals and another WPIAL Championship, Dravon Henry finished with 8 interceptions on defense--the side of the field he hopes to play on at the next level. On offense, he accumulated over 1,500 yards and 25 total touchdowns.

Henry camped at Pitt a couple of weeks ago, where is intent on keeping an ear on the Panthers.

"They're definitely showing me some interest right now," Henry said. "They might (offer) later. There was also a coach from Eastern Michigan. He was showing interest too."

Even though there are a number of other coaches at these prospect camps--several from MAC schools who are there to run drills and get a look on some of the talent in attendance--Henry was interested in getting to know Pitt secondary coach Matt House.

"I probably will not attend any other camps this summer," Henry added. "I did actually talk to Coach House. It was a good learning experience. I got to learn some new techniques and show them what I can be like at the next level. I also learned a few new things.

Coming off that 14-1 season from a year ago, Henry and company will look to be a force once again in Pennsylvania's Class AA.
