Seantrel Henderson Named Player of The Year

Seantrel Henderson, a 6-foot-8, 338-pound tackle from St. Paul (MN) Cretin Derham Hall, was named Parade Magazine Player of the Year. Henderson visited Miami of Florida Friday and Saturday and is stopping by the Minnesota campus Sunday afternoon, the final day before the dead period.

Seantrel Henderson helped lead the Raiders to a 13-1 mark this season, defeating Eden Prairie 16-5 in the Prep Bowl in the Class AAAAA title game. He was named Associated Press Player of the Year and was named All-State by the St. Paul Pioneer Press and Minnesota Vikings and was selected as All-Metro by the Minneapolis Star Tribune and Kare-11 TV.

Henderson was one of seven finalists for the U.S. Army Player of the Year award and played in the U.S. Army All-American Game in San Antonio January 9th.

Henderson is deciding between Minnesota, Miami of Florida, USC, Ohio State, Florida and Notre Dame. Henderson plans to make his college choice on signing day.

Henderson is averaging 14.1 points per game for the Raider basketball team, which is 13-3 this year, but 10-0 when Henderson plays. He has scored in double figures in nine of ten games this season.

Henderson attended last Saturday's Gopher game versus Michigan State and visited the locker rom afterwards along with Minnesota head coach Tim Brewster and recruiting coordinator Dan Berezowitz.
