APRIL 14, 2008 "When Norwood firefighter and paramedic Jeff Lackmeyer rang the bell for a fundraising effort last week to honor two fallen Colerain Township firefighters, an unsung Bengal answered the call. Eric Henderson has yet to play an NFL snap, but the linebacker got a quick assist at the last minute when he donated two autographed footballs and other Bengals items that helped the Indian Mound Cafe in Norwood raise $3,500 for the funds in memory of Capt. Robin Broxterman and firefighter Brian Schira."
