Justin Henderson Update

Justin Henderson sat out last season at Little Rock Central. He is at North Little Rock now and is off to a good start to his senior year.

"It's going alright," said Justin Henderson of the 2009 season. "I thought we would beat El Dorado but we came out flat. They went up 13-0 early. We scored three touchdowns and went up 18-13. El Dorado scored late and won it 19-18."

North Little Rock beat Texarkana 32-7. Henderson caught the first touchdown in the game, which was also the first of the season for his team. Against El Dorado, he caught two passes including a dump off that Henderson caught, turned and jumped over a guy, and gained 20 yards.

Sylvan Hills is up next on the schedule. "The coaches are looking to split me wide and get me the ball more," explained Henderson. "I still play defensive end some. I try to do whatever the coaches ask to help the team."

Henderson explained why he transferred to North Little Rock. "I moved in with my Dad," he said. "After missing my junior year, I want to make the most of my senior year."

Ole Miss and Oklahoma State are keeping up with Justin. The 6'3" 242 pound tight end said Arkansas State was scheduled to visit him at school on Thursday. UAPB has invited him to their next home game.

Henderson missed last year because of doctor's concerns over an enlarged heart. He is 100% healthy now and he is starting to get noticed. Justin turned heads when he visited Louisiana Tech's spring game with his former Central High teammates. Everyone wanted to know who the big guy was. Football fans are finding out.
