BOSTON - Six different teams will have new additions to the Boston University Athletic Hall of Fame with Jessica Alcorta, Troy Billings, Nick Bone, Carnell Henderson, Chrissy Lombard and Christine Stief making up the Class of 2012, Assistant Vice President and Director of Athletics Mike Lynch announced Thursday afternoon. The 49th induction banquet will be held on Saturday, May 12, 2012, at 5:30 p.m. in the Trustees' Ballroom on the ninth floor of the BU School of Management.
In total, the class combined for 13 All-America honors and 13 conference titles while featuring one national Freshman of the Year award recipient.
A four-year letterman on the football team, wide receiver Carnell Henderson ('95) concluded his time at BU ranked second in receiving yards (2,759) and touchdown receptions (24) while finishing third in receptions (188). As a senior, he earned Third Team All-America accolades from The Sports Network after setting a school record for yards with 1,302 off 79 receptions.
A native of Woonsocket, he becomes the fifth Terrier and third offensive player from the 1993 team alongside quarterback Robert Dougherty ('95) and center Andre Maksimow ('95) to be inducted into the BU Hall of Fame. That season, he had 41 catches and 617 yards along with seven touchdowns to help the Terriers post an undefeated 11-0 mark in regular season play and defeat Kurt Warner's Northern Iowa team in the first round of the playoffs before falling to Idaho in the second round.
