Founder & Executive Director
Henri a native of Pompano Beach, Florida, and a graduate of Blanche Ely High School, is not afraid of hard
work and interesting challenges when it comes to achieving success on and off the gridiron. As a youth Henri
was recognized as an All-American Athlete in Parade Magazine’s Super Prep and Football Report. After
accomplishing a stellar high school athletic performance, Henri, earned an athletic scholarship to The Florida
State University where he joined his older brother Zach, as a member of the Seminole’s 1993 National
Champions and Atlantic Coast Conference Championship team from 1993 – 1997. In 1997, Henri was drafted
in the 4th round of the National Football League (NFL) draft where he played an impressive 7 years, 5 seasons
with the Atlanta Falcons, and 2 seasons with the Minnesota Vikings.
Shortly after being drafted to the Atlanta Falcons, Henri founded Team 94 (his jersey number), a not-for-profit
organization. Team 94 goal was to assist at-risk youth with after-school tutoring, and mentoring in the
Metropolitan Atlanta area. Through this individual effort with Team 94, Henri was able to help several youth in
the Atlanta area with achieving their dream of going to college and accomplishing other educational goals which
seemed out of reach for them at the time.
He was so inspired by the progress and achievements of the youth enrolled in Team 94; he sought to expand his
sphere of influence and work. When he relocated to Minnesota to continue his NFL career with the Vikings, he
co-founded the Crockett Foundation with brother, Zack. Both of them returned to their hometown of Pompano
Beach, Florida during the 2002 off-season and began hosting the annual Crockett Foundation Weekend, which
included a black-tie gala, golf tournament, and football camp for youth to raise money for educational tutoring
and mentoring programs in the City of Pompano Beach.
Since its inception, the Crockett Foundation has been strongly committed to improving the quality of life for
youth and building strong communities for families locally and across the country. In 2009, Henri created the
annual Crockett Foundation Family Health & Community Awareness Festival for the residents of Broward
County. Through this initiative the Crockett Foundations goal is to assist youth and adults with creating healthy
families, mentally and physically by providing free health screenings, access to useful information and medical
professionals to help decrease the incidence of serious health problems such as; heart disease, hypertension,
diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other issues that plague many minority communities. Henri is currently developing a
performing arts special event “Battle of the Bands” for local tri-county high school bands to participate in and
raise funds for several scholarships to be awarded to a deserving student who participates in a performing arts
program at one of the local high schools.
Henri is not only a community philanthropist; he is also a successful businessman and entrepreneur. He is the
President/CEO of South Florida Development & Investment Company, President/CEO Guaranteed Enterprise
Trucking services and owner and operator of Vanity Salon. Henri has a Bachelor of Science Degree in
Criminology and is an active member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated.
