The first thing you notice when meeting Derrick Henry has to be his size. At 6'3", 240 lbs. Henry doesn't look like most running backs.
"I kinda went back and looked at my kindergarten pictures and it's like AT&T raising the bar, it gets higher, and I was the tallest one." says Henry.
Some analysts think that size will force Henry to change positions at the next level. But like another former local star Henry hopes to prove the doubters wrong.
"Tim Tebow in his last year won the state championship and led his team, I kinda try to embrace that role and try to work hard cause that's a hard working man, that's really motivation for me to come out on top like he did."
Even with all the attention of the recruiting process the Yulee star still puts himself out there on the web where you can follow his tweets.
"I really enjoy twitter, you don't really say what you want but you talk to the people and meet different people and it's really a fun thing to see."
