Henry is a C/1B out of Dunwoody High School who is a strong, physical player with room to grow. A student of the game, Henry is that classic first player at the field, last one to leave type mentality. Behind the plate, Henry has a balanced set up and receives the ball quietly, doing a great job of expanding the strike zone. He blocks well, and has a great catch and release, and his arm is getting stronger. He also is an excellent pitch caller that takes ownership of any pitching staff. He has solid feet and good hands at 1B, and this allows his bat to stay in the line-up. At the plate, Henry has tons of potential to hit for above-average power. He creates good extension and covers the zone extremely well. He catches up to good fastballs and trusts his hands on off-speed pitches. He is a selfless hitter when the situation calls for it. Henry is a fantastic teammate, and will have many opportunities to play this game at the next level.
