Rest in Peace LSU Football Super Fan Harry Henson

Anyone who knew Harry K. knew his love and dedication to LSU football.

One of his favorite past times was sharing a video of LSU legend Billy Cannon, a Baton Rouge native and 1959 LSU graduate, the winner of the 1959 Heisman Trophy as a halfback. The video features Cannon’s most memorable performance his senior season of 1959 against Ole Miss. Top-ranked LSU trailed the third-ranked Rebels 3-0 early in the fourth quarter when Cannon fielded a punt at the LSU 11 and broke seven tackles on his way to a winning touchdown, as the Tigers won 7-3. The run helped cement the Heisman Trophy for Cannon in 1959 and led the Tigers to the 1958 national championship.

The radio call by the announcer along with the grainy black-and white film footage is one of Harry K’s favorite stories and footage that he loved to share.
