WCHS 8 does a feature on Pierria' Henry

Local Charleston ABC-affiliate WCHS did a video feature on Pierria' Henry outlining his recruitment and his late-season injury that almost cost him his life. They mention that if he had waited 1 more hour to get to the hospital, he likely would have died. He has 45 staples on the outside of his thigh and 50 stitches on the inside, the result of the 5 surgeries on his leg to treat the clot in his thigh. Henry talks about how the injury gave him a new appreciation for life as well as those close to him.

The feature said Henry received 11 scholarship offers, including in-state schools Marshall and West Virginia. He explains his reasoning for committing to VCU and cited the coaching staff's support and concern throughout his ordeal as being what sealed the deal for him. Vic Herbert (Pierria's basketball coach) said that Pierria' will undoubtedly learn and mature from this experience. There are highlights of him on the basketball court as well as the football field (the reporter also noted that Pierria' would not be able to play football this season as he recovers). It's a great feature and a must-see if you are a Ram fan!
