Granville County gridiron stars Brennan Henry and Brandin Glenn have signed to play football at the collegiate level.

Henry, an offensive guard on South Granville, will be heading to Jacksonville University in Florida. Glenn, one of the most versatile players on the Granville Central roster, is staying a little closer to home and attending North Carolina Wesleyan.

“I really liked Jacksonville University,” Henry said. “They have a great campus and everyone made me feel at home there.”

Henry also played on the defensive line and was the long snapper for the Vikings. He helped guide South Granville to a 32-7 record during his three years as a member of the varsity program.

Glenn played multiple positions on offense as well as defense for Granville Central. He most recently stepped in at quarterback when the starter went down with an injury. He led the Panthers to a 42-8 win over Louisburg and into the state playoffs against North Stanley.

Glenn helped pace the Granville Central program to a 28-20 overall record over the last four years.

“Wesleyan was just the right fit for me,” Glenn said. “It’s a small school close to home.”

Glenn plans to study mechanical engineering while at Wesleyan through a program supported by N.C. State University.

“Brandin got in the weight room and prepared his body to be a college athlete,” Granville Central coach Larry Dale said. “He is ready to take the next step.”
