Watch Derrick Henry’s Entire Heisman Trophy Speech
Alabama running back Derrick Henry humbly accepted his Heisman Trophy on Saturday night by giving an eight-minute speech that thanked just about everyone who has impacted his life.
The junior didn't have a speech prepared but followed notes he made to guide him through the biggest moment of his football career. Henry thanked his parents, grandmother, coaches, and teammates before dedicating the award to his late friend and former teammate Altee Tenpenny.
The night capped an incredible week for Henry, who claimed the Doak Walker Award, the Maxwell Award and the Walter Camp Award along with his Heisman.
