Ryan Coy Henington (b. Sept. 19, 1998) is a walk-on wide receiver-turned-quarterback from Junction City High School who is majoring in business management.

He redshirted in 2017 and entered 2018 competing with Hunter Hall for the right to be the third-string quarterback behind Alex Delton and/or Skylar Thompson.

Henington completed 3 of 5 passes for 20 yards for the White team in the 2018 spring game and also had a nifty 16-yard run. He saw time in three games in 2018, primarily on kickoff coverage, and had one tackle, which came against South Dakota.

Henington earned first-team Academic All-Big 12 honors in 2018 and enters 2019 as a likely scout team candidate, considering all reports have Nick Ast and John Holcombe II competing for primary backup duties behind presumptive starter Thompson.

He lettered three years for the Blue Jays under head coach Randall Zimmerman and was named the 2016 Centennial League Offensive Player of the Year, while he was an all-state honoree by The Topeka Capital-Journal, The Wichita Eagle and KPreps.com.

Henington totaled more than 4,500 career total yards in high school, including during his senior campaign, when he threw for 1,783 yards and rushed for 1,012 yards.
