TREY HENDERSON ON: Football versus track: "They are two different aspects of me. Football is the aggressive, loud and intense side of me. In football, you have teammates to help you if you mess up. Track is different because you are completely isolated and it really isn't much of a team sport, but more of a personal battle. I feed off of both sports and really can't put one above the other."
