William Henderson Enjoying His View From The Booth

William Henderson entered the NFL as a third round pick out of North Carolina in 1995 hoping to earn enough to pay for grad school.

NC State’s Terry Henderson out 6-8 weeks with ankle injury

Henderson among Favre's 'forgotten teammates'

William Henderson: Has there been a quieter, more dependable Favre teammate than this humble fullback out of North Carolina? And how about this for a stat: since Mike Sherman took over in 2000, Henderson has 16 regular-season carries. 16!

Who’s the starter at fullback?

If former UNC star William Henderson is the Green Bay Packers’ starting fullback, as coach Mike Sherman so adamantly contended this week, then Sherman has an unusual way of showing it.
