Henderson is named AAA Player of the Year

The Lincoln football team won its second straight Turkey Bowl championship this year and Tuesday earned the postseason spoils that typically come along with a title.

Running back David Henderson was named as the Academic Athletic Association’s Player of the Year by league coaches after rushing for 2,431 yards and 26 touchdowns on 257 carries. In the past two games, the junior showed again why he is one of the Bay Area’s best, running for 198 yards and two touchdowns in Lincoln’s 29-22 TurkeyBowl win over Lowell and going off for 243 yards and two scores last week in a 78-37 loss to McClymonds of Oakland in the inaugural Transbay Bowl.

Henderson’s fullback, Phillippe Lewis, was named as the Defensive Player of the Year for his work at linebacker, while Lincoln’s Phil Ferrigno was the Coach of the Year.

Lowell led all teams with seven first-team selections, including leading rushers Bismark Navarro, Duc Anh Le and Marcos Cronander. The quartet combined for 2,724 yards and 28 touchdowns to lead the Cardinals to a perfect 7-0 AAA regular season.
