An eight-year veteran of the Tribe's program, Trey Henderson has proven to be an invaluable resource for the staff, both on the field as an assistant and in the state-of-the-art Laycock Football Center as the team's video coordinator. After working with the Tribe's front seven last season, he will assist with the secondary in 2013. He will also continue his responsibilities with the kickers.
Henderson's primary recruiting areas include southwestern Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia. He also recruits Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Missouri.
In his time on campus, Henderson has gathered a wide-range of experience in working with both sides of the ball and has been heavily involved in collecting, editing and preparing practice and game footage for the staff, using the team's DVSport software editing system. He also played a lead role in helping to organize and implement the program's networked video editing suite in the Jimmye Laycock Football Center. On the field, Henderson has been equally instrumental on the player development side, as he has helped mentor a pair of all-conference cornerbacks, in Derek Cox (now with the San Diego Chargers) and B.W. Webb (now with the Dallas Cowboys). Additionally, Henderson helped three Tribe standouts - linebacker Jabrel Mines, linebacker Luke Rhodes and defensive tackle Nick Zaremba - earn all-conference honors last fall.
Henderson came to Williamsburg in 2006 after working for Overhead Door Company of Central Va., where he arranged more than $180,000 in sales. While working in sales, Henderson also coached football at Hopewell High School, where he served as the defensive backs and wide receivers coach for the previous three seasons and helped guide the Blue Devils to the 2003 AAA State Championship.
Henderson also spent time as an assistant wrestling coach at Benedictine High School in Richmond, sending two wrestlers to the Prep National Tournament.
A four-year letterwinning defensive back at Randolph-Macon College, Henderson started three years in the secondary and was the Yellow Jackets' co-captain in 2001, while also spending three seasons on the baseball team. He received his Bachelor of Arts in economics and business from RMC in 2002 and completed a Master's of Science in Sport Leadership at Virginia Commonwealth University in December of 2006.
Henderson, whose complete name Herman Allen Henderson, III, is an active member of American Football Coaches Association and the Virginia High School League.
He enjoys fishing, golfing and spending time at Claytor Lake. Henderson resides in Williamsburg with his wife, Summers, and their sons, Claytor (4) and Corbin, who was born in April.
