Hensley knows even more is expected of him this season.
"I'm tremendously excited, it's my senior year," Hensley said. "It's the last shot to go out and give it everything I got to try and lead us to state championship."
Hensley has high hopes for not just himself, but the team.
"Things went pretty good last year, and the sky is the limit this season," Hensley said. "I'd like to get about 3,000 yards passing or more. I believe we can be one of the best in the state passing-wise."
Hensley has several weapons at his disposal, especially in Zach Pate, a multi-dimensional talent who rushed for 700 yards and had 644 receiving yards with 13 total touchdowns. Hensley also has three 3-year starters back on the offensive line protecting him.
Throughout all his individual successes, Hensley is still focused on trying to guide the Redskins past the quarterfinal round of the playoffs for the first time.
"Individually, I think I've done pretty good," Hensley said. "You have to always stay humble and hungry and better yourself every day. That is my motto. I want to help lead this team to a state championship."
After the season Hensley will turn his attention to college football.
He attended the West Virginia University Prospect Camp in late July and was named Most Valuable Player among the 310 players from surrounding states.
"It was sweet," Hensley said. "There were a lot of kids and talent. I got to talk to all the coaches. They were very interested in me and are going to come watch me this year.
"It's been my dream since day one to go out and get a scholarship. Getting my school paid for is a big deal to me. DI (Football Bowl Subdivision) is the main goal, but if a D2 or D3 offered me a full scholarship, I'd just have to weigh my options."
