Following a decisive Super Bowl victory on Sunday, Saints fever continues to grip Opelousas.

The city council voted Tuesday to rename Jefferson Street for Opelousas native and Saints' wide receiver Devery Henderson.

The council had only two reservations what do the residents on the street have to say about the idea and whether it should be Henderson street, avenue, boulevard or drive.

The official name will now become Devery Henderson Jr. Drive, and Mayor Donald Cravins Sr. said the change will become effective almost immediately.
