Senior offensive lineman Marcus Henderson has been selected to participate in the 2020 Under Armour All-America High-School Football Game. Athletic Director and Football Head Coach Bobby Alston recently presented Henderson with his official jersey commemorating the honor in an all-school assembly.
A 4-star prospect as rated by ESPN, Henderson is currently ranked as the No. 160 player in the country in the ESPN Top-300, including as the No. 5 offensive guard and the No. 6 player in the state of Tennessee.
Henderson is a four-year letterman for the Owls and has started on the offensive line each of the past three seasons. This year, he is also playing extensive snaps on the defensive line and has amassed 10 total tackles, including 4 tackles-for-loss for 11 yards, 1 sack for a loss of 5 yards, and 1 safety.
Henderson is staying focused on this season despite the scholarship offers he has received from some of the nation’s premier programs. This honor is especially meaningful to him.
“Ever since I was a young kid, I wanted to play in the Under Armour All-America Game,” Henderson said. “So, it’s exciting living out my dreams and knowing that everything I worked so hard for is paying off.”
Henderson is the fourth football player at MUS to be named an Under Armour All-American. Gary Wunderlich ’14, Drew Richmond ’15, and Maurice Hampton ’19 also received this honor. The Under Armour All-America game will take place Thursday, January 2, at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, FL, at 5 p.m. CST.
