Giving back: Former Florida DB CJ Henderson makes major donation to his high school
Everyone is talking about the Jacksonville Jaguars these days. They drafted Trevor Lawrence No. 1 overall in this year’s draft. They just signed Tim Tebow to play tight end.
But, just last year, the Jaguars used the No. 9 overall pick in the draft on Florida DB CJ Henderson. That brought a lot of money Henderson’s way, and it seems he’s putting some of it to good use.
Per Michael DiRocco of ESPN, Henderson is donating $250,000 to his former high school, Christopher Columbus High School in Miami.
Per DiRocco, the money will be used to renovate the school’s training room, adding hydrotherapy, massage chairs, training tables and more.
“This gift is a way for me to give back to the school who helped me so much,” Henderson said in a statement. “It feels good to know that I will play a part in helping future student-athletes at Columbus.”
