Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Jamie Henderson – University of Georgia graduate

Friday August 4, 2006

Perhaps my favorite Jamie Henderson play was at Arkansas in 2000 when he jumped an Arkansas pass early in the game and took it all the way back to start one of the more impressive routs in the Jim Donnan era. Love me some Pick Six.

Anyway, Henderson went on to the NFL and the New York Jets, and you might remember that his career was cut short by a motorcycle accident. Unlike Big Ben up in Pittsburgh, Henderson was wearing a helmet, and it probably saved his life. His injuries were severe thought and ended his NFL career. He was in a coma.

The happy ending is that Henderson has come back from that devastating accident to earn his degree from the University of Georgia this summer.

The NY Daily News has the story of his road to recovery. Well worth a read.
