Alabama's Derrick Henry Was Feeling All Sorts of Ways During CFP Championship

Derrick Henry might've had the most forgettable 158-yard, three-touchdown game in the history of organized football on Monday night.

That's not a knock on Henry. It's not his fault Lane Kiffin decided to open the lab vault and unleash Olympic sprinter/possible Resident Evil monster O.J. Howard on the world. 

But even with Henry's contributions getting somewhat lost in the sauce of Alabama's 45-40 College Football Playoff championship win over Clemson, he still made his presence known. Specifically, he made it known on Jake Coker's attempts to put water in his mouth.

Mike Tunison posted a GIF of Henry coming in hot and nearly congratulating Coker over the bench.

That was long before victory was assured. So, you can only imagine what Henry looked like after the Crimson Tide seized victory.

Reddit user rezips (h/t SB Nation's James Dator) posted footage of the running back's postgame reaction. He could scarcely contain himself:

Or not. I don't know exactly what that look is, but it looks like the face you'd make if aliens landed and began making out with your girlfriend.

Or maybe it's just the face you make when you've spent the last four hours running at top speed and being bombarded with all of the most intense emotions known to man.

Yeah. That's probably it.

Dan is on Twitter. He hasn't made that face since Fallout 4 debuted.
