Moundridge’s Henry Hecox – Athlete Spotlight Presented By Goering Hardware, Co.

By Blake Chadwick

As a quarterback, Moundridge junior Henry Hecox possesses the best of both worlds when it comes to throwing the ball and running it. He has been successful in picking defenses apart and knowing when to use his shoulder to get some extra yards. 

The junior is coming off of a year where he threw for 11 touchdowns and only one interception, while also rushing for 631 yards and 11 more touchdowns. 

On top of being the quarterback, Hecox was a defensive back who found some success in the secondary – he totaled 47.5 tackles, two sacks and four pass breakups. 

But now as a junior, he will play linebacker for the Wildcats. 

After a 6-3 season where Moundridge went the farthest in the playoffs then they had in the last 15 years, the junior wasn’t satisfied. He got right back to sharpening his skills in all aspects for both sides of the ball. 

“This summer I improved on my accuracy, power and leadership,” Hecox said. “I am excited to work with my coaches on my game and make improvements wherever they see need.”

With his leadership at an all-time high, summer workouts have been a time for the quarterback to lead by example and pull everyone together. 

“Coach [Tyler] O’Connor has brought an increased intensity to our summer workouts,” Hecox said. “We have had great turnout in the weight room and we are getting bigger and faster as a team.”

For Hecox, he has personal goals, but the team goals are more important. 

“I never want to be outworked on the field, so that as a team we can continue to work to make it deeper and deeper into the postseason,” he said.
