Union QB Nolan Henry wins Wendy’s High School Heisman

Union quarterback Nolan Henry won the Wendy’s High School Heisman national award on Friday night in New York City and his school will receive $10,000 as a result. The Heisman is a prestigious award given annually to one male and one female high school athlete. Jacobs (Algonquin, Ill.) runner Lauren Van Vlierbergen was the female winner.

The Heisman program honors high school seniors for their athletic and academic accomplishments and for their community leadership.

Henry was one of six male finalists and was honored at a banquet at New York City’s Best Buy Theatre. He was nominated because of an impressive resume. Off the field, he sponsored food drives, helped finance and build a sustainable farm and sport court in Liberia. He also raised over $25,000 for PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center’s Holtzman Twins Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. On the field, Henry was a three-year starter for Union and helped his team to the first round of the Class 4A state playoffs this year.
