The native of Camrose, Alberta also racked up 371 puntreturn yards (ninth in CIS) and 399 kick return yards, which ledCanada West and was second most in CIS. The speedy wide receiveralso broke a U of A record, and picked up the CIS single seasonhigh for kick-off return yards, when he broke a 106-yard touchdownrun in a game against Manitoba.

Set to enter his sophomore season, and with an establishedrapport with Golden Bears QB Ryan Schwartz, Henry is poised for anAll-Canadian season in 2014, and is a key element in the GoldenBears rebuild. A focal point of the offence, but certainly not theonly dangerous weapon in the Alberta schemes, Henry is on pace toblaze up the Canada West and CIS receiving stats once again.
