Focus 2014: Ahkeem Henderson
Ahkeem Henderson ran for 1,000-plus yards and double-digit touchdowns as a junior for 1A state champ Ouachita Christian, which has captured 30 consecutive wins. "We put in the hard work and the season went good," Henderson said. "I'm good at running the ball, especially outside. I need to work on my inside running. I'm good at kick returns. "I like defensive back and expect to play more DB next year. I like corner and could see myself there or at safety in college." Henderson averaged nearly 26 yards per kick return with an 86-yarder vs. Arcadia and a 50-yarder vs. Southern Lab. He eclipsed the 100-yard rushing mark in three games and gained 96 in another as part of head coach Steven Fitzhugh's deep backfield. "I'm getting letters from LSU, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Tulane," he said. "I like (local schools) Louisiana Tech and ULM but haven't heard from them yet." Henderson looks to defend his state title in the 200 meters in a few months. "I was the anchor on our 4 X 100 relay team that won state," he said. "We took second in the 4 X 200." The junior runs a 4.49 in the 40-yard dash with a 22.10 in the 200. He has a 3.5 grade point average.
