Santa Fe: Walter Henderson signs with Arkansas...
By Robert Przybylo
When am I going to learn I’m not a kid anymore? It wasn’t Sunday as I had a blast covering Edmond Santa Fe track star Walter Henderson signing with Arkansas.
Henderson’s journey has been well-chronicled at this point. He went from not having any idea what track and field really was two years ago to now signing with one of the top track schools in the nation.
Coach Carl Hawkins was also there and said five kids from this year’s team have signed. One at the Division I level, one at Division II and three at NAIA.
The Wolves placed second in the team race, edged out by Southmoore. Henderson, despite not racing at his best because of a groin injury, placed third in both the 100 and 200 meters.
And now I know why the Wolves’ track team is so good after watching a furious hour of constant battles in Mario & Sonic Summer Olympics for the Wii. The intensity in those track races was just like the real thing.
Henderson said I should have added up all the scholarship money that was in the room as there were a lot of star athletes from the Edmond area in attendance.
Look for a video with Henderson on NewsOK later this week. EDIT: Or how about now?
