08/08/14 - 2014 PRESEASON ROTARY LOMBARDI AWARD WATCH LIST: Ben Henney - LB, Sr. - Kansas...Heeney missed a pair of games in the middle of the 2013 conference slate, but still finished with a team-best 88 total stops, including 11.5 tackles for loss and the first three interceptions of his career. - Kansas football
08/08/14 - 2014 PRESEASON ALL-BIG 12 FOOTBALL TEAM (MEDIA): LB Ben Heeney, Kansas 6-0 230 Sr/3L Hutchinson, Kan.,...Heeney, who was an All-Big 12 Second Team selection in 2013, is heading into 2014 as the conference's leading returning tackler. Last year the Hutchinson, Kansas native recorded a team-high 88 tackles and finished fourth in the conference with 8.7 tackles-per-game.

08/04/14 - 2014 PRESEASON BEDNARIK AWARD WATCH LIST: LB Ben Heeney, Kansas...Heeney, a senior from Hutchinson, Kan., missed a pair of games in the middle of the 2013 conference slate, but still finished with a team-best 88 total stops, including 11.5 tackles for loss and the first three interceptions of his career.

06/05/14 - Kansas' top NFL Draft-Eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 1. ILB Ben Heeney, Senior...The Jayhawks' leading tackler the past two seasons, Heeney has been the heart and soul of the Kansas' defense since he became the full-time starter in 2012 and will again be one of the team leaders in 2014. The Jayhawks' defense ranked near dead last in college football last season, allowing 31.4 points per game, but Heeney was one of the lone bright spots, earning Second Team All-Big 12 honors the past two years. He has average straight-line speed and appears tight in space, but plays with a try-hard motor and leaves everything he has on the field.

Heeney is a physical wrap tackler and aggressive in pursuit, taking decisive angles and breaking down well on the move locks onto his target and won't make many mistakes. He performs better than expected in man coverage with his read/react skills to float while reading the eyes of the quarterback, breaking well to make plays on the ball. Although his average athleticism tends to show up too much, Heeney has the mental make-up and competitive nature needed for the position and he will make it tough for a NFL team to cut him next year. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

12/12/13 - 2013 ASSOCIATED PRESS ALL-BIG 12 SECOND TEAM: LB Ben Heeney, Kansas, 6-0, 230, Jr., Hutchinson, Kan.,...An injury was the only thing that slowed Heeney, a junior from Hutchinson, Kan., who had a breakout season in 2012 and continued as KU's leading tackler in 2013. Heeney missed two games in the middle of the conference slate but still finished with 88 total stops, including 11.5 tackles for loss and the first three interceptions of his career.

Heeney was fourth in the conference with 8.7 tackles per game and ranked fifth in tackles-for-loss per game with 1.15. Heeney, a second team honoree last year, reached double figures in tackles in six of his 10 games played, including four Big 12 contests. Heeney posted 12 tackles, 2.0 tackles-for-loss, and an interception in the Jayhawks' conference opener against Texas Tech before leaving the TCU game a week later with a knee injury and missing two starts. - Kansas football

12/12/13 - 2013 ALL-BIG 12 SECOND TEAM (COACHES): LB Ben Heeney, Kansas, Jr., Hutchinson, Kan./Hutchinson...Heeney, a junior from Hutchinson, Kan., missed a pair of games in the middle of the conference slate but still finished with a team-best 88 total stops, including 11.5 tackles for loss and the first three interceptions of his career. Heeney, also selected as an All-Big 12 Second Team selection by the Associated Press Monday, was fourth in the conference with 8.7 tackles per game and ranked fifth in tackles-for-loss per game with 1.15. Heeney reached double figures in tackles in six of his 10 games played, including four Big 12 contests. - Kansas football
09/13/13 - Scouting the Kansas run defense: Too often, the Jayhawks got dented by FCS rushers as South Dakota generated 240 yards on the ground and a 5.1-yard average per attempt. The defensive front that was completely revamped was steamrolled on occasion, and linebackers also weren't in position to make plays. Speedier backs await, ready exploit this weakness for big gains if the Jayhawks do not improve. - The Sports Xchange
09/06/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: LB Ben Heeney can emerge as a defensive leader, even though Kansas has changed alignments and removed some of the responsibilities for linebackers. Heeney ranked third in the Big 12 with 112 tackles last season and capitalizes on his instincts, rather than rangy speed. - The Sports Xchange
