The legacy Derrick Henry will leave when he finishes his career will be etched into the lore of high school football.
Henry is on the verge of breaking the national rushing record held by Sugarland (Texas) running back Ken Hall for more than 60 years.
At 6-foot-3, 245-pounds, he runs a consistent 4.4 40-yard dash to go with a 40-inch vertical leap.
He possesses a rare size-to-speed ratio for the high school, college, or pro level. The four-star athlete isn't just a workout warrior, his body of work speaks for itself.
He has amassed 10,458 yards rushing as of last week.
On Friday night, he looks to get one step closer to Hall's record of 11,232 yards when his team takes on Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian and fellow U.S. Army All-American Nick Washington.
So when did Henry know he would be this good?
"It was after my last game of my freshman year. Someone from Rivals.com came up to me and asked for an interview," he said. "My coach pulled me into his room and told me things are going to change now."
Things certainly changed when he finished his freshman season with 2,465 yards and 26 touchdowns. The assault on would-be defenses looking to slow down the power running back would simply be, "we can't stop him, we can only hope to contain him."
Thursday capped another milestone when Henry received his U.S. Army All-American Bowl jersey from Sgt. First Class Jacob Canterbury.
