Finishing with a record of 10-2 and some explosive offensive performances, Henry Clay was powered by several prospects, including running back Bo Brooks.
Bo Brooks finished second on Henry Clay’s team in rushing with 937 yards and seven touchdowns. He finished the year with 1128 yards of total offense and eight total touchdowns.
“I feel great about how I performed this season. For the second year in a row, I led my team in rushing,” said Brooks. “I had game winning touchdowns against Pulaski County, Lafayette and Scott County,” Brooks continued.
Brooks’s performance in those games helped make a difference for Henry Clay, but towards the end of the regular season the Blue Devils began to click and in three consecutive games, they scored 54, 70 and 85 points – all victories.
“We played well. We beat every team in the city and won the district,” said Brooks. “We know we should have gone further, but overall we had a fun season and achieved some of our goals,” he continued.
The 5-foot-8, 190-pound Brooks possesses great speed (4.37) and numbers on the field, but Brooks is also a standout in the classroom.
“I’m taking care of business with my school work and maintaining my 3.6 (GPA). I will finish my pre-college course work that will total 15 college credit hours,” he said. “I plan to enjoy the rest of my senior year and possibly visit more perspective colleges. I’m training for the track season, so I can keep my speed up and accomplish my track goals,” he finished.
Brooks has consistently been hearing from Louisville, Marshall, Western Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky, Charleston, Lake Eerie and Indianapolis. He holds offers from the latter three.
The senior visited several colleges unofficially and is making plans to visit some other schools with his family before making a decision around signing day.
