Boys Athlete of the Week // Epe Henriques, Dunbar, football

December 07, 2010

The senior running back played a huge role in No. 12 Dunbar's come-from-behind 22-12 victory over Havre de Grace for the state Class 1A football championship Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium. He sparked the Poets from 12 points down with an 81-yard touchdown strike to Andre Garrett late in the third quarter. Six minutes later, his conversion run after Kevin Estep's touchdown gave the Poets the lead for good. Then he added a 38-yard touchdown run to close out the Poets' seventh state title and their fourth in five years. Henriques, a transfer from last year's state Class 1A runner-up Joppatowne, ran for 115 yards on 21 carries.
