No he doesn't!
Wikipedia don't know shit! First of all, it was Lora HINTON, not Henson.
According to Dan Hardesty, long time sports editor of the Advocate, he says in his book, The Louisiana Tigers, on page 295 the following-
(Regarding the game against Fla. at Gainesville in 1972): "The highlight of this game was a spectacular defensive effort by sophomore cornerback Mike Williams, the first black football player on LSU scholarship. Williams caught Florida speedster Nat Moore on the one-yard line aftera 79 yd. gallop down the sideline after a screen pass. Williams then recovered a Gator fumble on the next play."
That should end any and all arguments!
I remember that game vividly as the Tigers drove up and down the field on the Gators in a driving rain. However the best anybody could do was kick two fg's for a 3-3 tie. Juan Roca and Rusty Jackson missed a total of 9 fg's for LSU.
