Just saw this on twitter…literally almost brought a tear to my eye. Not only is this HUGE for the program at this point but his dad is everything to me as it relates to being a Niner and having Niner pride.
When I arrived on campus in '91 I felt like I was attending a D2 school (the commuter school feel was real back then)…until I saw Henry play. He was the FIRST thing I had Niner Pride about. I could brag to EVERYONE that we had a player that could play anywhere and compete with anyone. He was a stud…winning the Pepsi Tournament in Charlotte beating 2 ranked teams (DePaul & Alabama) made me realize I was at a real D1 school that deserved my respect as an attending student.
If not for Henry, I would have been another kid going to UNCC wearing Tarheel clothes…but because of Henry…I became a full fledged, passionate Niner…and I’m proud as hell that his kid is coming back here to help resurrect the program hopefully to the level that his dad helped us get to when he was here.
Thank you Brice!!
