Fallen teammate Dayton Henson

 M Paying tribute: Academy Park fullback James Carmichael is one of several Knights who wears the No. 8 on the back of his helmet in honor of fallen teammate Dayton Henson.

Henson, a 6-1, 165-pound junior defensive back, is out for the season as a result of a bruised kidney suffered in the Knights' 17-0 opening-day loss to Springfield.

""He's a good friend and I just wanted to do something for him,'' said Carmichael, who was the third-leading rusher in the county going into the weekend. ""I told him that I would wear his number even if he came back this season.''
