Zoom Series: LaDarius Henderson

Jun 21, 2022

The first 2022 Sun Devil Football Summer Zoom Series on June 15 featured offensive lineman LaDarius Henderson. A Texas-native, Henderson began playing football his junior year of high school and was recruited by Arizona State University in 2018. Now, heading into his senior year, Henderson is feeling confident about the upcoming season.

With new and ongoing changes to the roster, Henderson says he's focusing on the team's gains rather than losses. "When I look around the locker room, we have some really good gains," he said.
One of those additions is Emmit Bohle, an offensive lineman who transferred from Northern State University. Henderson said he and Bohle have become fast friends and push each other to be better athletes. 
"Before Emmit got here, I felt like I was the fastest lineman," said Henderson. These days, Henderson doesn't win as many races, but says the offensive line will be the best one yet.
He also noted that the team's culture and mindset is "on the incline," stating that the team has a brotherly love and respect for each other and share similar goals for the season and the future. 
"I'm pretty sure everyone in that room has aspirations of playing in the NFL," said Henderson. 

This summer, Henderson is training in Tempe, including training with former Detroit Lions center Dominic Raiola. 
"I feel like I'm in great shape. My body composition is probably the best it's been," he said.
During this off season, Henderson is trying to attack his weaknesses. After last season, he watched every game, a few times, to hone in on areas where he could improve. 
At the start of his football career, Henderson felt he was "always playing catch up." Now, as he enters his senior year with a leadership position on the team, he is feeling prepared. 
"Watching that progress, it's been awesome and amazing for me. "I created a work ethic and just a love for the game that you kind of need to be great at it."
At the end of the day, Henderson says if you buy in and do your job, that's how you win football games. 
"We're gonna go in, we're gonna play our game, we're gonna do our job and we're gonna win games."
