Henry heads to Raiders mini-camp

Henry heads to Raiders mini-camp

It is a long way from Ramer Elementary School to Oakland, calif.

For county native and former Ramer Elemen­tary Student, Rob Henry, the journey has taken nearly 20 years crossing through home football fields in Mississippi, Florida and Indiana.

The Former Purdue quarterback is a native of Guys, who, following an outstanding high school career in Florida, made his way to play quarter­back at the storied Division I football program.

Following his college career, Henry said that he was contacted by several NFL teams. Ironi­cally the Raiders contacted him last, just a few days before the draft began.

During the draft, Henry watched as teams made their draft selections but he went undraft­ed through the final rounds.

“About 30 minutes following the draft (the Raiders) called me up and that was it,” Henry said in a interview from Los Angelas Internation­al Airport on route to Oakland. “It was a dream come true. Now I am out here and ready to go to mini-camp.”
