Delaware Valley coach Keith Olsommer on Henderson: “Jason was a team captain for his his junior season. His numbers are astounding as he needs just over 70 tackles for 500 for his career. He is as explosive a player as we have seen come through Delaware Valley and has been a dominant player since he stepped on the field.”
