Hendricks eagerly puts Central Crossing ‘on his back’

Kolin Hendricks, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound senior linebacker, sets the tone for Central Crossing.

Kolin Hendricks isn’t shy about getting a hit, but that hasn’t always been the case for the Central Crossing linebacker.

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound senior found his passion for football in high school and still hasn’t stopped making plays. Through three games, he led the team with 40 tackles, more than double the 19 stops recorded by linebacker Nash Barrett and defensive lineman Kyle Kruskamp.

“Honestly, I was scared to hit when I was young,” Hendricks said. “I started in high school as a seventh grader and I wasn’t that big. The fear started to evaporate as I got older in the eighth grade and I got out of it. I started going out and having fun and beating up people. I like the contact.
