As the NFL marks the 50th Super Bowl this season, they are celebrating the players and coaches of the past 49 Super Bowls and their high schools and communities that have positively impacted the game. The NFL congratulates Henry County High School into the Super Bowl High School Honor Roll community. As a member, a commemorative Golden Football produced by Wilson, is sent to the high school of every player or head coach who was on an active roster in a Super Bowl. Pictured is John Hudson, a graduate of Henry County High School, member of the 2000 World Champion Baltimore Ravens, and present Henry County High School teacher and coach, who was sent a Golden Football. The football will be on display in the lobby of the school.
The high school will also receive an NFL Character Education Curriculum and is eligible to apply for a grant from the NFL Foundation to help support the school's football program. Football has always been about more than wins and losses. The game teaches lessons that last a lifetime. Thanks Coach Hudson for representing our school and our community in such a positive way!
