Henry Triumphs in Ultimate Madden Bowl, Surpasses $1M in Winnings
Henry “Henry” Leverette made history as the first Madden player to achieve millionaire status, crossing the seven-figure threshold in career earnings by clinching the Ultimate Madden Bowl championship in Las Vegas on Friday.
Entering as the top seed, Henry secured a decisive victory over 10th-seeded Wesley “Wesley” Gittens with a score of 35-24 in the final showdown at the House of Blues in the Mandalay Bay casino.
The championship title brought a substantial cash prize of $250,000, propelling Henry’s total career earnings in the Madden Championship Series (MCS) to an impressive $1,170,975.
Hailing from Chicago and at just 20 years old, Henry also earned a championship ring akin to those bestowed upon Super Bowl champions, marking his seventh MCS title triumph.
