Olympic's Devon Henderson invited to Blue-Grey national combine

Olympic High football player Devon Henderson, a 6-foot-2, 256-pound rising senior, has been invited to the Blue-Grey National Super Combine.

Henderson was selected based on his performance at a regional event and will now compete with 200  prospects from 36 states at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio June 23.

The combine also serves as a pool to select a North and South squad to compete in the Blue-Grey National All-Star game, Jan. 12, 2013 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. The combine prospects will comprise approximately 75 percent of the all-star teams.

Last season, Henderson was an all-conference defensive end and honorable mention all-conference middle linebacker while playing for the St. Jude Fighting Christians, a first-year independent school team comprised primarily of home-school and private school students from Mecklenburg and Union Counties.

Henderson finished the 2011 season with 82 tackles, two sacks and four tackles for a loss.
