Miles HC: ASU duo worthy of Senior Bowl invite

MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Alabama State defensive stars Kourtney Berry and Roderick “Ghost” Henderson aren’t on the current list of accepted invites for next month’s Senior Bowl.

Miles College coach Reginald Ruffin thinks they should wind up playing in the Jan. 28 all-star game in Mobile.

“They are two of the best guys and I wish they’ll have the opportunity to play in the Senior Bowl and get an opportunity because they will be difference makers in the next level,” said Ruffin the day before Alabama State beat Miles College, 53-20, in last week’s Turkey Day Classic.

“It shows that whatever we’re doing, it shows on film,” said the 6-foot, 210-pound Berry, the 2015 SWAC Defensive Player of the Year who made 66 tackles in 10 games this season. “Coaches see it. It’s not just our coaches, but other coaches, they acknowledge it and it just goes to show that our hard work is actually paying off.”

Berry, a linebacker, and Henderson, a 6-foot, 1-inch, 352-pound defensive tackle, combined for 10 tackles in their final game at ASU. Berry made six stops with one being for a loss against the team coached by the man who sees him as someone worthy of playing with FBS talent in the Senior Bowl.
