03/08/2012 - Wisconsin Pro Day: Another Badger who hoped he made an impression was safety Aaron Henry. Not invited to the combine, Henry has been working all off-season for his pro day opportunity and said he made every movement count. "I did pretty good," he said. "In my 40 time, I did a (personal best) 4.53. I jumped an all-time high-I jumped 39 ?? (inches)-and when I was down training I was jumping 32, 33s, 34s. I got 16 reps on the bench. I felt like I fared well." - Janesville Gazette

03/08/2012 - Despite being a first-team all-Big Ten selection last year, safety Aaron Henry didn't receive an invitation to the combine, nor did he ever get an explanation as to why not. But Henry didn't seem too bothered by that Wednesday, who was happy with his 4.53 40-yard dash, 39-and-a-half-inch vertical leap and 16 reps on the bench press. "When I went to the East-West Shrine Game, I had the scouts I met with, which was like 12 of them, all of them kept saying ???We'll see you at the combine,'" Henry said. "My answer to that was ???Sir, I wasn't invited to the combine.' When they heard that, all of them had a shocked look on their face and then they just said, ???Well, we'll just see you at Wisconsin.' "And to come back here on my home turf, for the last time and running in these conditions ... I wouldn't of had it any other way." - Elliot Hughes, UW Badger Herald

09/01/2011 - SCOUTING THE DEFENSE: When defensive coordinator Dave Doeren became Northern Illinois' head coach after the Rose Bowl, new coordinators Chris Ash and Charlie Partridge used the opportunity to install a more daring package. While the Badgers lost second-team all-American DE J.J. Watt to the pros, they regained the services of play-making LB Chris Borland from the injury list. Borland, OLB Mike Taylor, S Aaron Henry and CB Antonio Fenelus give the Badgers a slew of big-time players behind a solid and experienced defensive line. QUOTE TO NOTE: "Every year you want to go in with the mindset of being the best. The hardest part is to repeat, to have that level of success again." Senior safety Aaron Henry in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. - The Sports Xchange

05/03/2011 - 2011 LOTT IMPACT TROPHY WATCH LIST: Aaron Henry, Wisconsin, DB, has been named to the 42-player Lott IMPACT Trophy watch list for the 2011 college football season as selected by the Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation. Henry looks to become the second Badger to win the award in as many years as J.J. Watt received the honor in 2010. A fifth-year senior, Henry made the transition from cornerback to safety last season. Despite the position change, Henry was still named second-team All-Big Ten by the coaches and honorable mention All-Big Ten by the media. Starting all 13 games, Henry led Wisconsin with three defensive touchdowns and three fumble recoveries and was second with two interceptions and nine passes defended. The Immokalee, Fla., native finished the season with 58 tackles and 0.5 tackles for loss. "He's a terrific player and will only get better," said Jim Leonhard, a 2004 Lott Trophy finalist and a former Badger All-American. "He's already an excellent cover man and is learning more and more about playing safety." - Wisconsin football
