Coach Henson

  • Trey Henson is joining the Centennial Community after 5 years at Riverwood High School, where he served as the Head Baseball Coach and Assistant Athletic Director. Henson's Baseball team set school records for wins and had playoff appearances in all five seasons. As Assistant Athletic Director, he oversaw fall sports, including Softball, Volleyball, and Football Operations. Prior to joining Riverwood, he was the Head Baseball coach at Clarke Central High School from 2012 through the spring 2017 season. Henson took over a program that had experienced little success and built it into a competitive program in Region 8–AAAAA, facing schools such as Loganville, Buford, and Flowery Branch. In addition to Baseball, Henson was also the Head Softball Coach for two seasons and Assistant Athletic Director.

    Prior to his tenure at Clarke Central, Henson was the Infield and Hitting Coach at North Georgia College and State University from 2008-2010. In 2006-2007, Henson was a Student Assistant Coach at the University of Georgia. Henson played college baseball at the University of Georgia under David Perno from 2003 to 2005 and was part of the 2004 Southeastern Conference championship team, which advanced to the 2004 College World Series. In the spring of 2005, Coach Henson played shortstop and second base at North Georgia College and State University and helped lead the team to a 57-15 overall record and a Southern States Athletic Conference Championship.

    Henson holds a B.S. in Health and Physical Education from the University of Georgia, a Masters of Education from North Georgia College & State University, as well as an Ed.S in Coaching Pedagogy from Valdosta State University. Henson's wife, Alex, a former Centennial teacher, currently works in Marietta City Schools and they have a 2.5-year-old son, DC, and a baby girl set to join the family in December. 

    Mr. Henson is excited about joining the Centennial team and is looking forward to being a Knight!
