LA Rams, former Memphis RB Darrell Henderson reflects on Super Bowl win

When Darrell Henderson Jr. left Memphis after the 2018 season, he did so as an All-American. Now 3 1/2 years later, he returned as a Super Bowl champion.

It was something Henderson still couldn’t believe as the Los Angeles Rams running back signed autographs at TNC Sports in Bartlett. He also greeted fans along with old friends who brought jerseys to sign.

“It felt amazing. I was still shocked and the next day I woke up like wow, ‘I’m a Super Bowl champion in my third year,'” Henderson said Saturday. “It takes some people their whole career to get it, so I got to give thanks to God and also my amazing team and coaching staff.”

Henderson had 50 all-purpose yards – 43 receiving, seven rushing – in the game, which was his postseason debut after being injured in December. He celebrated by spending time back home in Batesville, Mississippi, as well as California.
