Such as this photo, when he was at L.D. Bell, which was taken on Feb. 7, 2008.
This also includes an amusing old Q&A Henderson had with the Star-Telegram back on Dec. 5, 2006 when he was a sophomore at 5A L.D. Bell afer he spent his freshman season at 3A Bowie.
the biggest difference between living in Bowie (Texas) and Bedford?
Marshall Henderson: There are a lot more things to do. There’s a mall here, and there are movies and just a lot more things. There are also rec centers where you can go play basketball.
Star-Telegram: What did you do for fun in Bowie?
Marshall Henderson: There was nothing to do. All I did was play basketball. You could go up to the Bowie High School gym, or you could just hang out.
Star-Telegram: Where did you go to eat?
Marshall Henderson: We had a McDonald’s and a Dairy Queen, and there was a nice little Mexican restaurant. I also remember when they opened a Super Wal-Mart and everyone went crazy. I was like, ‘There are millions of those everywhere else.’ But people there got really excited.
Do you consider yourself a city kid or a country kid?
Marshall Henderson: I’m a city guy. I only lived in Bowie for three years. Before that, I was at school in the Birdville district. Hunting and fishing are big things to do in Bowie. I couldn’t really do that. No one ever asked me to, either. They probably knew I would tell them no.
(BTW - this shot was taken in Dec. of 2007; Henderson was shooting was a buzzer-beating, half court attempt that went in against Irving.)
Was it hard finding your way around L.D. Bell?
Marshall Henderson: At Bowie, there’s just one hallway that goes around the school and one that goes through the middle. When I came to Bell, I got really lost. I wasn’t used to the millions of hallways and the number of people who are there. But now I’m a lot better adjusted.
