Tight end still mulling options

Despite a 4-8 record and a second round exit in the playoffs, Mitchell Henry had one of the best individual seasons of any player in the state of Kentucky.

Despite a 4-8 record and a second round exit in the playoffs, Mitchell Henry had one of the best individual seasons of any player in the state of Kentucky.

Elizabethtown High (Ky.) stumbled to an 0-7 start this year before winning four straight games, including a first round playoff victory. A big part of that run and any success Etown had was senior tight end Mitchell Henry.

"I feel great with my performance this season," said Henry. "Definitely with my blocking, which improved a lot since last season," he said.

Henry was extremely productive, with 72 receptions for 1171 yards and 14 touchdowns.

At this point, Henry hasn't narrowed his choices down, nor has he proclaimed a leader between the three teams he's hearing from most. Memphis, Western Kentucky and Ole Miss are all involved. Memphis and WKU have offered and he plans to visit both of them in the future. In the meantime, Henry is still working on his game.

"I'm working on getting stronger. But I don't have a lot of time to do things because of basketball," he said.

The 6-foot-5, 240-pound Henry also holds an offer from Bowling Green.
