Henry donates $100,000 to USF football

31

January

Henrymug One of USF's most successful NFL players is giving back to the Bulls. Cowboys cornerback Anthony Henry, who played during USF's first four seasons of college football, has made a $100,000 donation to USF football.

Henry's donation -- believed to be the largest ever by a Bulls football player -- will be used to help USF upgrade the locker room, weight room and other areas of the school's athletic facility.

Henry, who just finished his eighth NFL season, is entering the final year of a five-year, $25 million contract he signed with Dallas in 2005. He started all but one game for the Cowboys this season.

Henry is in town for Sunday's Super Bowl, and here is a pic from the Times' Daniel Wallace of Henry competing in Terrell Owens' charity basketball game.

-- Also, here's a feature story in Sunday's Times on defensive end Demi Thompson of Lake Mary, who will be part of USF's recruiting class when he signs with the Bulls on Wednesday. The defensive ends in USF's class are ranked as the nation's second-best at the position, according to Rivals.com. Oh, and after you read the story, here's a link to the blog his father Joseph keeps at The Church at the Wall, where he is senior pastor.
