Ole Miss star Marshall Henderson was a total neo-maxi-zoom-dweebie in high school (photo)


Ole Miss Rebels basketball star Marshall Henderson, given the team’s name, fittingly fancies himself something of a rebel, possibly even a loner (if he happened to be inspired by a foreboding warning made by the titular character in “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure” to Dottie). He’s college basketball’s resident bad boy, loved by supporters but hated with the fire of a thousand suns by his critics, which of there are many.

A recent photo of Henderson as a gawky, awkward, braces-wearing high school student recently surfaced on reddit:


Awesome. As one redditor suggested, if this fantastic image isn’t blown up and made into a bunch of gigantic cardboard head cutouts popular at college basketball venues at each and every Ole Miss road games, well, it would be a crying shame.

Henderson currently is averaging 19.3 points per game on a 16-8 Rebels team.
