One of St. George’s most promising football players of the modern era, Tyshon Henderson ’13 reached a remarkable milestone this past weekend when he learned he’d caught the attention of the National Football League: The Chicago Bears signed Tyshon as a free agent following the NFL Draft on Saturday in Philadelphia.
Now a 6-foot-7, 340-pound offensive lineman for the Clark Atlanta University Panthers, Tyshon never played football before he arrived at St. George’s in 2009 from Newark, New Jersey, and met head coach John Mackay. Read more here.
A gentle giant off the gridiron, a towering lineman with an expansive reach on it, Tyshon was recruited in his sixth-form year at SG to play Division 1 football for the University of Massachusetts Minutemen. He was at UMass Amherst for three years, appearing in 30 games creating holes for the team’s running plays from 2013-15 before arriving at Clark Atlanta last fall.
Signing to the NFL this past weekend represents an extraordinary accomplishment for a college athlete. According to the NCAA only 1.5 percent of all football-playing NCAA Division 1 athletes make it to the NFL.
Tyshon will report to the Bears on May 13, the day after he takes his final exams.
“I always told him that I thought that he could play on Sundays someday if he wanted to,” Coach Mackay said.
That makes two of Dragons in the NFL this year. Alumnus Cooper Helfet ’07 is a tight end for the Oakland Raiders.
