Henson, from Tulsa, Oklahoma, was a three-time NCAA champion for Oklahoma A&M back in the 1930's and currently holds the distinction as the oldest living NCAA champion. Henson chronicles his life back in the Great Depression working in the oil fields, growing up wrestling and continuing his career for coach Edward C. Gallagher in Stillwater.

A renowned surgeon who made great advances in sports medicine as well, Henson currently lives in Fort Collins, Colorado after he retired from a distinguished career in medicine.
