The speedster Khayri Denny is more than ready for his final college football season. While watching Denny practice over the course of summer camp he's been producing plays left
and right showing that he's a consistent leader for the offense as well as his team and the wide receiver corps.

Denny has been one of the most consistent wide receivers in program history. He came in as a freshman and played right away under former wide receiver coach Ari Confessor, instantly
making an impact on the field. Denny is the team's active leader with 92 career receptions, leaving him just eight shy of 100 for his career. Entering his final year at URI, he has played in 32 games for the Rams, with 23 starts, and he has a total of 1,098 yards receiving.

While having the pleasure to sit down and speak with Denny, I was able to capture his approach not only to football, but his life in general.

Denny stated while answering one of the interview questions, "I believe you can never be satisfied with where you are. There is always room for growth and improvement in all areas, and that's just how I approach my life."

Throughout camp, if Denny would drop a ball or miss a block, he'd be sure to do push ups to motivate himself to be sure that he wouldn't make the same mistake. He holds himself accountable and he works hard to be great.

I have no doubt in my mind that Denny will be a great leader for his team in his final season suiting up as Rhode Island Ram.

Go Rhody!
