    His Crazy Fact

    I play Outside Linebacker in football. Quarterbacks don’t like me either. In 8 games this year, I had 29 sacks, 7 forced fumbles, and 33 solo tackles for no gain or loss.

    Why Henry Loves Kayaking:

    Because every year the water is always different and challenging in its own way – it makes me think, it makes me react, it humbles me, but most of all it makes me glad I am alive. But there are also all of the friends I have made on the river, they’re the best!

    Favorite SeasonFive Product:

    Phantom Long Sleeve Shirt. I use it for kayaking, skiing, and now elk hunting as a base layer – This shirt is the bomb!
