Austin Henyon, the junior QB from Fort Worth, will call the signals for Trinity Valley's offense this year...

"I just got through playing in a 7-on-7 tournament," said Trinity Valley junior QB Austin Henyon. "We went 3-0. I'll be the starting quarterback this year, and I got some varsity experience at wide receiver last season.

"One of our wide receivers got hurt and I replaced him for the last two games. In the final game of the year (playoff contest vs. Fort Worth Country Day), I led the team in receiving. I had six catches for 145 yards, and that gave me a lot of confidence. I'm hoping to carry that momentum over to this year when I'm at quarterback."

Henyon, a left-handed dual-threat signal-caller, rolled up more than 1,000 yards both through the air and on the ground as the Trojans' junior varsity QB in 2010.

In varsity action, Henyon's highlights included 74 yards rushing on only four attempts (18.5 yards per carry) with a touchdown vs. St. Andrew's (Austin, Tx.). He also caught a touchdown pass vs. Country Day. Moreover, Henyon launched a 50-yard punt vs. White Deer.

"I'm currently 6-foot-1 and 182 pounds," he said. "I've been to eight or nine camps already this year. I went to Rice yesterday (last week). Our offensive lineman, Spencer Stanley, is committed to Rice.

"When their coaches came and watched us during spring training, they said I was doing good. They're going to be watching me."

Henyon says he patterns his game after Colt McCoy and Andy Dalton.
