HOPEWELL, Va. (WWBT) - Hopewell’s TreVeyon Henderson’s list of accolades is already impressive. On Friday, he added another piece of hardware to his crowded trophy case.

Henderson was named Gatorade Virginia Player of the Year, the first player from the school to earn the award. The junior running back and defensive back has amassed 2,720 all-purpose yards and scored 46 total touchdowns during the 2019 season. A good portion of his damage has been done running the football, where he’s gained 1,989 yards and found the endzone 39 times.

The Blue Devils’ star was also named Region 3A Player of the Year and is a nominee for the NBC12 Mark L. Fischer Player of the Year Award, which goes to the best high school football player in the Richmond area, as decided by local head coaches and select media members.

Henderson has helped lead Hopewell to its first 13-0 record in program history. The Blue Devils face Goochland on Saturday afternoon in the Class 3 state semifinal. Hopewell is seeking its second state championship in the last three seasons.
