Henderson Getting Back On Track At Navarro

2017 Navarro WR Keshawn Henderson (6-3, 215), a bounceback from Old Dominion, is laser-focused on having a great sophomore season with the Bulldogs this fall and getting back to a four-year school...


"I was a qualifier out of high school and I signed with Old Dominion," Henderson told JCFootball.com. "I got in some trouble, so I left and I'm just trying to get back on track and back to a four-year school."

After leaving the Monarchs, Henderson began looking around and he said Navarro was the easy choice for him.

"It was closer to home for my family and friends to attend my games so it was a good fit for me," Henderson said. "The program here is one of the best in the country and they get guys moved on and that was what I was looking for."

In his first game with the Bulldogs last week, Henderson totaled three receptions for 82 yards in a 27-23 win over Georgia Military.

"I'm a wide receiver that you always have know where I am on the field," Henderson noted. "I have good routes and good hands and being 6'3", 215 and running 4.5 forty, that helps me get open because I am able to use my size and speed on smaller defenders.

"Now I get to show my physicality more moving from outside receiver to slot receiver. I don't really think I'm a possession guy because I have the ability to get yards after the catch."

As far as recruiting is concerned, no schools have contacted the talented wideout, but he hopes a good start to his season will get him more looks.

Henderson is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have two years to play two following the completion of the 2016 football season.
