As weekends go, they don’t get much more important than this one for Dolphins’ quarterback Chad Henne.
Today, July 2, Henne celebrates his 25th birthday. And Saturday he ends one of the longest courtships in recent memory when he marries longtime girlfriend Brittany Hartman in Perkasie, Pa., just outside Allentown.
Henne’s dedication to his craft is evidenced by the fact the couple has postponed the honeymoon to next year. That means that, while most of the coaching staff, front office and players are still finishing up their offseason vacations, he’ll be back at the team’s Davie practice facility preparing for the training camp that opens four weeks from today.
Speaking with miamidolphins.com recently, Henne said he doesn’t expect the kind of nerves he experienced when he took over for Chad Pennington midway through last year’s game at San Diego.
“I’ve been with her for so long now - for 10 years - and hopefully it’s going to be a piece of cake,” he said. “I know there will be nerves, but it will be good to have fun with it and give her what she deserves.”
Among the estimated 200 invited guests will be Jake Long, one of Henne’s best friends and his teammate for the past six years at both Michigan and Miami.
