You can’t sleep on Hawaii’s defense with their star safety lurking.
The Hawaii Warriors surprised many prognosticators in 2016 with an explosive offense, but the defense found an opportunism that was often lacking the season before. Trayvon Henderson’s junior year was a big reason for this: He led the team with seven passes defended and finished with three interceptions, two sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss. His 90 tackles also ranked sixth among the conference’s defensive backs, as well.
Henderson was recently named a preseason all-conference safety ahead of the 2017 season, so opposing quarterbacks will need to be aware of where the senior is at all times.
