The North gymnasium, which was torn down when Springfield High School was built, was named after Henderson.
"My greatest memories were the players I had and the effort they put into being amateur athletes and playing for their school and community, and my relationships with them," Henderson said in 2009. "And also my relationships with opposing coaches — guys who were very professional in what they did, and did it for the good of the people they served."Even though you competed with them like it was the last game you'd ever play, we'd walk off the court as friends with most of them. As a coach, you'll have heartaches and times to celebrate. That's pretty much how life is."
Henderson graduated from Cadiz High School, spent four years in the Air Force and then attended Wittenberg, earning eight letters in baseball, basketball and football. He graduated in 1950.
