A lifetime of achievement

By David Richards

The numbers don't lie.

Don Henderson has spent 31 years as a Minnesota High School head football coach, 28 alone with Triton.

His teams have won 15 conference championships, clinched nine state tournament berths, earned three state titles and finished once as a runner up.

He compiled a record of 251 wins and 84 losses and spent 28 years as an athletic director and 25 years as a head golf coach.

For his efforts, Henderson, or "Hendy" to those who know him best, was awarded the Coaches Lifetime Achievement Award at the annual Rochester Sports Banquet Jan. 29 at the Rochester Events Center.

"They say it takes a village to raise a child, and I also believe it takes a village to raise a coach," said Henderson, in a speech where he expressed gratitude to the communities he has served, his family, the parents of his athletes and his assistant coaches.

"I want to thank all of them."

Also among the winners at the banquet were the Kasson-Mantorville wrestling team as Team of the Year that finished last season with an undefeated dual record of 25-0 and a Class AA team championship; Josh Wieme of Goodhue girls basketball as Coach of the Year; Mara Quam of Kenyon-Wanamingo as Female Athlete of the Year; Brad Berge of Kasson-Mantorville wrestling as Male Athlete of the Year; and Alex Steffl of the Rochester Flyers as Adaptive Athlete of the Year.
