Ted Henrys (born Edward Raymond Henry, 15 October 1924 - 11 March 2014) was an Australian rules footballer who played in the Victorian Football Association (VFA) during the late 1940s and early 1950s. He is noted for being one of only four players from the league to be selected in the All-Australian team at an interstate carnival.

He had been using the name Henrys when he enlisted in the RAAF on 29 October 1941 and after serving as Henry post-war changed it by dee poll to Henrys.

Henrys started his VFA career at Brunswick in 1946 and played 70 games for the club by the time he left at the conclusion of the 1950 season. He crossed to Preston in 1951 and cemented a full back spot. For three successive seasons from 1951 to 1953 he won Preston's 'Best and Fairest' award and in the last of those years won the J. J. Liston Trophy. After his last season in 1955 he retired with 98 games to his name for Preston. In the 1960s he spent time as Preston's assistant coach and despite being aged over 40 played the occasional game for the club, bringing up his 100 game milestone.

In 1953 he represented the VFA at the Adelaide Carnival and was named in the inaugural All-Australian side beside his teammate Frank Johnson.

After retirement Ted Henrys joined with Phil Gibbs to broadcast the VFA Football on Channel 0.
