Wesley Chapel RB Devon Henry leaves team, transfers to Freedom

For the second time this summer, Wesley Chapel’s football program has lost an important offensive starter, as RB Devon Henry has left the Wildcats and will transfer to Freedom.
“He just left,” second-year coach Ben Alford told the Tampa Tribune. “He’s a good kid, but it’s probably a better situation there. Devon is a heck of a back with a college career ahead of him, but it’s not that big of a deal and we’re not going to worry about guys that aren’t here.”
This news comes just a little more than a month after sophomore starting QB Alex McGough left Wesley Chapel to enroll at Gaither.
Henry, who led Wesley Chapel with 485 rushing yards and 4 rushing TD and has a scholarship offer from Bryant University (Rhode Island), was not with the team during spring drills in May, though Alford says he has plenty of guys ready to step in, such as senior Angel Locicero, who took over at QB in the North Suncoast 7-on-7 passing league during the summer, plus junior running back DeQuane Anderson, who looks to see more action with Henry’s departure.
“No, we’re not going to be (scrambling to fill positions),” said Alford, who led the Wildcats to a 3-7 record last season. “I’ve got plenty of guys who are looking to step up and make a name for themselves and work for this team. ... So it’s not a big deal, and we just move on like we have in the past.”
