    Bryan Henderson-Football-Indiana State University

     

    The two year starter is known for his quiet demeanor off the field and his ferocious playing style on it.  In one full season and the shortened 2020 season he was a nightmare for opposing offenses. He has 83 tackles, 12 sacks, 4 forced fumbles and recovered 3 fumbles. Opposing coaches and the media took notice as he was selected a two-time All-Conference player and in 2021 he was a first team selection to the All-Southwest Ohio Team and the All-State Team. Coach Bolden said, “Bryan led by example and that example was always a great one. His motor never stops. He will be a valuable asset to Coach Mallory at Indiana State.”

    Aden Miller-Football-University of Charleston

    As a team captain for the Firebirds he was a magician on the field. His ability to “come out of nowhere” and to “sniff out plays” made him a menace to everyone on the Firebirds’ schedule.  Over the last two seasons Aden totaled 144 tackles, 8.5 sacks, 3 interceptions, and forced 3 fumbles. His outstanding play on the field was recognized as he was selected First Team All-Conference, First Team All-Southwest Ohio and Second Team All-State. Coach Bolden said of Aden, “He’s a throwback player who never wants to come off the field. Not only was he the centerpiece of an outstanding defense, he excelled at special teams, and spent time as a utility running back on offense. The University of Charleston is getting not only a great player but an even better young man.”
