Who Is This Great FL HS Player? Travis Henry/Frostproof


Recommended Posts

This guy put on one of the most amazing offensive performances ever in an FHSAA title game, yet his team lost the title game.  He was a hs All-American.  He set school records while playing in the SEC and helped lead his team to a national championship.  He played for a number of years in the NFL and was a Pro Bowl selection. 

Who is he?

This a shot in dark but maybe Fred Taylor?

Travis Henry

In 1996, playing for Frostproof High, Travis Henry rushed for 4087 yards and 34 TD's , averaging 11.3 yards per carry.  In the 3A state title game in Daytona Beach, Henry rushed for a state title game record 328 yards.  That effort enabled him to break a 43 year-old national record for the most rushing yards in a season.  Unfortunately, it was not enough, and Frostproof lost the title game to two-time defending state champion Union County.   

That season, he shattered the state single-season rushing record of 2,969 yards set by University Christian's Willie McClendon in 1987.  He rushed for 14 straight 200-yard games and finished with 19 in all.  Henry finished his hs career with 7,221 rushing yards and 79 touchdowns.  

Henry played 4 years at Tennessee, rushing for 3,078 yards. He made the All-SEC team in 2000, his senior year.  He was drafted by the Buffalo Bills, where he became one of the Bills' all-time leading rushers.  Henry played for 7 seasons in the NFL, where he rushed for about 6,000 career yards.

Playing for Tennessee in a game that featured one of the most improbable endings in NCAA history, Travis Henry(#20) took over at the end of the game and scored the winning touchdown.  The fun starts at about 4:00, when everyone thought the game was over.  The article below discusses the game.

Derrick Henry (something with that last name!) was also a monster back from Florida!
