The Wilde Lake Wildecats will be hearing a new voice along the sidelines under the Friday Night Lights as former assistant coach, Coach Henderson, steps up and replaces head coach, Coach Henderson for the 2019-2020 football season.

Next year will be Coach Henderson’s sixth year coaching football at Wilde Lake, since he has been the assistant coach alongside Coach Harrison. “Wilde Lake has a lot of rich history, and to be the school’s only 5th head coach since it’s opening, is extremely humbling,” said Coach Henderson.

In a time of self-reflection, Coach Harrison credits both his former players and the persistence and dedication of the coaching staff to the team’s successful run this season, most of which was placed in the hands of Henderson. “He knows how to get the best out of his players by building great relationships,” said Coach Harrison.

One of Henderson’s biggest coaching aspects revolves around his relationships with his players. “The thing I enjoy the most about this job is that I have the opportunity to shape, help, and develop my student athletes, so they’re able to reach their hopes and dreams,” he said.

Henderson’s coaching style has been able to reach multiple student-athletes, as he deals with each of his players individually and personally. “I want to make sure that my players are not only successful on the field, but in the classroom as well,” said Henderson.

Whether it’s on or off the field, Henderson is working on improving is his player’s image. “I want each and everyone of my players to know what they are representing when they put those jerseys on,” he said.

After coming off of a 6-4 season record, Henderson wants nothing but success for his team next school year. In order to achieve this goal, he knows he’s going to have to motivate his players and continue to drive them down the road of success.
