Member Category:



Jim Henry is best known for his accomplishments as a track star at Napa High School, but he also was a major threat as a wide receiver on the football team. His credentials as a Hall of Fame member resemble those of 1997 inductee Sherman Miller. Henry was the Most Valuable Track Athlete on the 1971 North Bay League championship track team. He holds the school record in the 100-yard dash and was a member, along with fellow HOF member Stuart Humpert, of the record setting 440-yard championship relay team. Henry was captain of the 1970 and 1971 Napa High School track teams. He was a three year star of the Napa High School track team. More than 30 years after his graduation, the record established by Henry still stands as Napa High School’s best, according to the information provided to the Selection Committee. After high school, Henry went on to become a four-year track letterman at Oregon State University where he ran the 440 and the mile relay.
