Holy Cross leaning on Severn grad Henry to avoid penalties

January 27, 2012|By Edward Lee

Along with junior goalkeeper Mike Fisher, senior defenseman David Henry is the veteran voice on a Holy Cross defense looking to improve on the 11.1 goals per game the unit surrendered last year.

Henry, a Davidsonville native and Severn graduate, has made 26 starts in the team’s last 30 contests and was named a captain in the offseason. Because of the Crusaders’ expected youth on defense, Holy Cross coach Jim Morrissey said Henry must avoid last season’s habit of collecting fouls.

“Dave’s got to stay out of the penalty box this year,” Morrissey said of Henry, who led the team in both penalties (15) and penalty minutes (12½). “He’s tried a couple different checks on the individual level so that he can stay out of the penalty box and dump the stick-swinging. … So we’ve got to keep him out of the penalty box and on the field. He’s our vocal leader back there. The guys trust him.”
