Coleman Returns Home, Brings NFL Friends

Henderson Lion turned New York Jet Drew Coleman returned home this weekend to headline the first annual Boys and Girls Club of Rusk County Car Show.

The show was held in the parking lot of Henderson high school, and also included a half dozen other East Texans from the NFL, including Longview's Willie Andrews, who plays for the New England Patriots.

"It's exciting," Andrews said. "We all came from this area, so one of these days one of these kids might play for New England, or the Jets, or the Cowboys."

"We just try to motivate the young kids to do the same thing we did."
