Feels Like 98 Countdown to Kick Off: Day 19 & 20
Being out at the scrimmage I wasnt able to post the countdown yesterday so today will count for both. My countdown, my rules.
Like many others who came to Knoxville in the 1990’s, Travis Henry was a high school all-star looking to make a big splash in the college football world. As part of Tennessee’s incredible stable of backs in 1998, Henry shared the field with Vol legends Jamal Lewis and Travis Stephens. Despite having to share time, Henry still managed 970 yards and 7 touchdowns en route to a Volunteer National Title. In 1999 Henry would once again share the field with Vol Legend Jamal Lewis. Henry's breakout year came in 2000 when he was given a much larger role in the running game. Through 11 games Henry managed 11 touchdowns and 1300 yards. After the 2000 season Henry would leave Knoxville to enter the NFL draft. Despite a shared work load for 2 years, Henry still managed to place his name atop the career rushing yards list at the University of Tennessee with 3,078. Henry would go in the 2nd round of the 2001 draft to the Buffalo Bills, where he would earn the 4th most rushing yards in team history. After an injury sidelined him in 2004, Buffalo cut Henry and he returned to Tennessee, this time to play for the Tennessee Titans. After a brief stint with the Titans, Henry found himself in Denver. Unfortunately Henry’s time in Denver, and in the NFL, was cut short due to legal troubles.
