Former USF cornerback and current Dallas Cowboys member Anthony Henry donated $100,000 Monday toward weight and locker room facilities.
It’s the largest gift ever given by a former USF player. Henry worked closely with Lee Roy Selmon, President of the USF Foundation Partnership of Athletics.
“Even though I am nine years removed from the program, I thought it was important to give back financially and show the current players how much USF means to me,” Henry said in a statement.
Henry — who played for USF from 1997-2000 — has the third most interceptions in school history (10). He had 50 tackles, two sacks and one interception for the Cowboys in 2008.
“We can’t thank Anthony enough for his generosity,” said USF coach Jim Leavitt. “After pouring his blood, sweat and tears into USF football as a player, he has continued to have a positive and powerful impact on Bulls football.”
