LEEDS — It’s rare for the Trussville Tribune to choose a defensive player as Player of the Week and a player from the same team as the Team of the Week. This week, we’re doing both.
Kavion Henderson, a junior defensive end for the Leeds Green Wave, had three sacks, four tackles – all for loss of yards – and recovered a fumble Friday night. Henderson was also productive as an H-back, contributing to the Leeds running attack.
His efforts led the Green Wave defense as it held Moody scoreless in the first half and disrupted Moody quarterback Cole McCarty all night. Henderson was a wrecking ball on defense and has earned recognition as Player of the Week.
