Athlete of the Week: Kayla Henderson - April 16th

Posted: Updated:

Caddo Magnet senior, Kayla Henderson, never dreamed she would one day sign a lacrosse scholarship let alone be the first girl in Louisiana to do so.

Henderson never played an organized sport before coming to Caddo Magnet as a freshman.

"My dad said I should join lacrosse and meet new people and so they talked me into it," said Henderson. "I played attack my first year and then turned into a goalie."

 As a goalie, Henderson attracted the attention of scouts in the Dallas area which led to a scholarship offer from Brevard College in North Carolina.

Henderson credited her coach, Alan Brown, for getting her to this skill level in her career.

"She has very quick hands," said Brown. "She had quick decision making. And she knows how to read an offense and help out her defense vocally."
