"It was definitely the hardest decision I've had to make to this point,” said Henry about making his decision to join Dartmouth. “Was very hard to pick between do I want football or academics, but with Dartmouth, it is the absolute best for academics and athletics so there's nothing more I could ask for. The unique opportunities I'll be able to receive at Dartmouth is just second to none.”
Henry has been a bit of legend in the state of Alaska, especially in his senior year where he was named Gatorade Alaska Player of the Year. Henry helped the Malemutes to their first state title appearance since 1985. The 6 foot 4, 235 pound quarterback threw for 14 touchdowns and ran for 23 more, for a state high 37 touchdowns on the season.
Dartmouth this past season went 9-1 on the year, winning the Ivy League Conference title.
