Darrell Henderson Mother Barbara Henderson

This lovely and beautiful lady is Barbara Henderson; she is the proud mother of NFL player Darrell Henderson, the runningback currently signed by the Los Angeles Rams who previously played college football for the Memphis Tigers at the University of Memphis.

Darrell Henderson College

Darrell Henderson played football at Memphis from 2016 to 2019; he played at South Panola High School before that.

His freshman year, he played in 13 games, started in 6,  had 87 attempts for 482 yards and five touchdowns. His sophomore year, Henderson had 130 attempts for 1154 yards, nine touchdowns in 12 games, started in 10.

In his junior year, he had 214 attempts for 1909 yards and 22 touchdowns in 13 games. He was a finalist for the Doak Walker, Maxwell, and Walter Camp Awards in 2018. He announced he wasn’t returning to Memphis for his senior year and entering the draft on December 12, 2018.

Darrell Henderson 40 Yard Dash

In 2014, The Oxford Citizen reported South Panola running back Darrell Henderson broke the combine record in the 40-yard dash.

Darrell Henderson’s 40-yard dash time was an outstanding  4.29 seconds that day. Later on, in 2019, he ran 4.49 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine. Unofficially it was listed at 4.36 seconds.

“I have been overlooked since high school. I got told in high school I was too small,” Henderson told reporters.  “So once I went to Memphis, I told myself I am going to bring it every week and every game and show them that size don’t matter. And you look at the NFL now you’ve got smaller backs being more productive than bigger backs.”

“I’ve been seeing a lot of reports saying that I was going to run a 4.6 or 4.5. Now is my time to show them they (are) wrong again,” Henderson said.

Darrell Tyrone Henderson Sr., born on January 7, 1972, had a rule for his three children, “After school, you went home instead of hanging around in the streets.”

“My dad was very strict on me and he wouldn’t let me hang around certain people that he felt would threaten me,” Henderson said. “He put us in the house and had me working and cutting grass for him.”

Mr. Henderson worked during the days and trained with his son Lil Darell in the neighbor’s yard afterward.

Barbara Henderson

Barbara Henderson was born Barbara Holmes on June 25, 1975. Barbara Henderson has at least two sisters, Marla and Michelle, and two brothers, Melvin and Kelvin Holmes (we apologized if we got that part wrong).

Like her husband, Darrell’s mom, Barbara supported their son’s decision to enter the draft instead of finishing college.

“When he was in the 12th grade, he said he wanted to be an NFL player. I said I hope he makes it,” Barbara Henderson said. “All the people (here) said that boy is going to be something. I heard a lot of people talking on Twitter that he was going to be taken in the fifth round. I was like, go on with all that,” Barbara Henderson said.

One interesting fact about Mrs. Henderson’s brother Kelvin Holmes born on August 19, 1983, is more than an uncle for Darrell; he is sort of like a big brother, 14 years his senior. After Kelvin moved in with his sister Barbara and her family, Kelvin and Darrell became close.

“He pretty much followed behind me and we did our own thing together,” said Holmes.

Kelvin Holmes still lives in Batesville with his wife, Tomekia Holmes, and their two children.

Darrell Henderson Siblings

It has been reported that Darell has three siblings; unfortunately, we couldn’t find them all. Luckily, we did find this amazing and gorgeous girl, Jerrica Holmes, Darrell Henderson’s older sister, who was born on November 25, 1993.

Jerrica Holmes

Jerrica Holmes serves in the Army United States National Guard.
