Justin Herron, Tackle for the Patriots and MoCo Native, Honored by Police for Helping Sexual Assault

Justin Herron was born in Silver Spring and graduated from The Bullis School in 2014. Now, he’s an offensive tackle for the New England Patriots.

Earlier this week he helped stop a sexual assault in a park and today he was honored as a hero by the Tempe Police Department in Arizona.

According to ESPN, police said a 30-year-old suspect was seen Saturday pushing a 71-year-old retired teacher to the ground. That’s when Herron and a second man, Murry Rogers, intervened.

Herron was a 2020 sixth round pick out of Wake Forest. He played in 12 games last season, starting six of them. He was in Arizona training for the upcoming NFL season.

He, along with Rogers, were presented with an “Outstanding Citizen” certificate by Tempe police.
