MULTIPLE MEDIA: Amazing Grace. The simple dignity of a bagpiper ushering in the football team and playing “Amazing Grace” made news throughout the Boston and New York metropolitan areas as the Pace football team resumed play after the death of and memorial service for its popular cornerback, Danroy (“DJ”) Henry. Several media televised resilient comments from a post-game news conference held by head coach Chris Dapolito, the four team captains and Ryan Fowler, assistant head coach and defensive coordinator.
An Associated Press (AP) recap was used by the New York Times with summaries of games of Ivy League colleges. ESPN picked up the full AP story. Most other New York and Boston print and video media, the all-news radio stations in New York City, and media across New England and down to Washington, D.C. showed or described the scene. The Brockton Enterprise carried the thank-you messages released by the Henry family.
The Paw Print undergraduate newspaper at Pace recapped criticism of police work during the incident, quoting two students who had not previously been mentioned.
