Henderson coach Hugh Fountain
‘You[apos]re talking about a wonderful young man with a great upside in football. He just came out for football this year. I talked to Justin about coming out for the football team last spring during track. Up until now, that and basketball were his sports. After he decided to come out for the team, the rest is kind of history.

‘Justin is a very smart kid who cares about academics a great deal. But he is also a very good athlete with good hands who can go and get the ball. He played wide receiver for us. Justin hasn[apos]t done a lot of weightlifting, so he[apos]s going to get so much bigger.’
