COVINGTON — Jaquan Henderson knows what he wants to do when his football days end, and it isn’t a career common to former Georgia Tech football players, such as real estate, finance or coaching. Henderson, the Tech signee who could be a difference-making linebacker, has a different route in mind.
Henderson, from Newton High in Covington, wants to be a funeral director.
“One thing about that, the key is job security,” he said. “People die every day.”
There’s more to Henderson’s aspiration than a clever observation. His choice opens a window into a young man with ambition to make a better life for himself and the compassion and personality to engage grief on a daily basis.
