Multi-Sport Star: Running-back TreVeyon Henderson

Hopewell junior and state champion TreVeyon Henderson is arguably one of the best multi-sport stars in Virginia right now. He owns a personal best of 6.45 in the 55m dash and won the Class 3 state title this winter. On top of those accolades he also led his Hopewell team to the Class 3 state title in Football in the fall. 

TreVeyon's Athlete Profile 

On the track TreVeyon is making strides of improvement week after week. He is though running with his hands tied behind his back (figuratively speaking) during the indoor season due to his strenuous football season. Not only does he compete in football until late November but he actually competes into the next year with all the All-Star games and big events he gets invited to. Putting it plainly, his 6.45 comes off of just a few weeks of training. 

This indoor season for instance he did not even run in a race until January 31st! His races were extremely consistent which leads us to believe he could have had a huge improvement this season had he raced more. How fast that ultimately would have been we do not know but it is safe to say he could have dipped under 6.39 with ideal conditions. 

The track though is just one side of his athletic career. He also is a standout running back for Hopewell and ended his junior campaign with 2,424 rushing yards, 53 touchdowns, and 283 receiving yards. He ranks US #1 for running-backs in his class, VA #1 recruit, and US #11 overall recruit for the Class of 2021. 

Following his senior campaign he will attend and compete for The Ohio State University as a Buckeye. He chose OSU over nearly 40 full-ride scholarship offers that included Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Virginia Tech, and quite a few others.
