Nathaniel Henderson is only seven years old, but you will see him this season on the bench with Coach Bennie Seltzer and the members of Coach Seltzer's basketball squad at the Pete Hanna Center.  A few days ago, Nathaniel (nicknamed Biggie) was added to the roster.  The story was picked up by USA Today and I have copied the link below.  We're honored to welcome Biggie to the Samford family.

The world is better because Samford people seek to show the face of Christ.
