Henley has a 6-6 high jump and a 41-foot triple jump to his credit thus far in his junior season at Kentridge. He has run a 15.7 110 high hurdles and thrown the discus 129 feet this spring too. You can add these numbers to his physical resume as well; 4.7 40, 225-pound bench, 350-pound squat, 225-pound power clean and has jumped 30 inches in the vertical leap.
"I'm pretty hard working and I get after it," Henley told Dawgman.com. "I don't
get after it all the time, but I try really hard." He played receiver last year and
put up some decent numbers, leading to first team all-league honors. Joey is such
a good athlete that he also earned second team all-SPSL honors for the Chargers.
"I like tight end a little bit better," Joey said of his preference for offense. "I kind
of like blocking for the run but I also like going out for the pass too. I think I have
pretty decent hands for a tight end. I get most of the balls that
come my way. And I have long arms too, so I can get to balls or bat down balls
that other players can't. I try and be around the ball a lot and go after it."
Henley had 400 yards receiving last year, as well as 29 tackles, 5 passes defensed
and 3 fumbled caused on defense. In hoops, he averaged 15 points and 10 boards
this past season.
Last Saturday was a busy day for Joey. "It was a good experience," he said of
his trip to Montlake to watch Washington's spring game. "I wasn't there the whole
time because I had to go to a funeral but when I was there watching the game it
was a good experience. You see the bigger guys out there and you think about
whether or not you can compete at that high of a level. I liked it. The game
looked pretty good to me. There were a lot of nice hits."
The Huskies have been paying attention to Henley. "A coach stopped by from
Washington yesterday," he said. "I can't remember his name, and I'm coming to
the University of Washington camp too."
His favorite school? Do you need to ask? "Washington." Washington State,
Oregon and Oregon State have also been contacting Joey.
