Being a college athlete is a special and unique accomplishment. Playing college basketball is a dream for so many high school players, and only a small percentage see it come to fruition. Justin Henderson recently saw his dream come true by committing to Lake Michigan College. Henderson is a 6’5” forward from Flat Rock who played grassroots basketball with the Downriver Bad Boyz. He’s a versatile player who will bring added toughness to the Lake Michigan College roster. Henderson is an excellent defender who lets his offensive game feed off his defense. I recently caught up with Justin Henderson for a Question and Answer session.
