CRESTVIEW — Tyler Henderson has been making big plays for the Crestview football team since the first game of his freshman year in August of 2009. It might have only been a preseason Kickoff Classic against Gulf Breeze, but it didn’t take long for Henderson to make his presence known as he intercepted a Dolphin pass and returned it for a touchdown.

He’s been making plays for the Bulldogs ever since as a defensive back, return specialist and punter. He’s even played a little running back and quarterback when needed.

Henderson’s next first game will be as college freshman against the University of Miami for Florida Atlantic University. Henderson signed his National-Letter of Intent to play for the Owls on Wednesday in a ceremony in the Crestview High School auditorium.

Henderson wasn’t the only Bulldog football player that signed Wednesday. Crestview running Micah Reed signed with the University of Central Florida and linebacker/defensive back Justin Rebholz signed with the Division III United States Coast Guard Academy.

Crestview head football coach and athletic director Kevin Pettis said each of the players have their own skill sets that make each special.

“I think Micah brings a durability that he is going to be able to carry the ball 30 or 40 times a game,” Pettis said. “And I think Tyler brings an explosiveness to a team. And I think Rebby brings stability.

“He may not always make the flashiest plays, but he’s always there. If you start counting tackles, he’s always going to be around the ball.”
