Henn, 14, was invited after attending an Offense-Defense Camp at Oglethorpe College in Atlanta and the O-D All-Star combine at Sharon Springs during the past summer. Henn was a wide receiver and outside linebacker for the 8th grade Northview Junior Titans.
He was selected for this honor from a group of over a 1,000 young athletes across the country in his age group.
The Offense-Defense Youth All-American Bowl is part of a week-long series of events, including the televised, eighth annual Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, an All-Star football game showcasing 88 of the top high school seniors in the country.
