Kenya Dennis ready to lead Hinds in 2013

RAYMOND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -


Hinds Community College has had its far share of football players move on to bigger stages.

The next Eagle that might be on the fast track to stardom is cornerback Kenya Dennis.

The sophomore from Leland, Miss., has already verbally committed to Missouri. 

He made that decision in June saying he welcomes the challenge of the SEC.

"They were low on defensive backs. I know that the SEC is loaded with good receivers. I felt like I was a guy that could come in and help them out with the big time wide receivers in the SEC," said Dennis.

Dennis posted 34 tackles in his freshman season at Hinds. He also collected to interceptions, forced two fumbles and notched a team high in pass breakups.

His 2013 goals go beyond stats.

"First of all I want to be a great leader. A team is nothing without a leader. I'm going to try to make sure everybody is on the right page. We are doing everything as a team," stated Dennis.

Dennis and the Eagles open the 2013 season against Mississippi Delta on Aug. 29.
