Coach Henderson one of a kind

December 21, 2011

Coach Jim Henderson was a man who loved football, and all kinds of sporting events. He knew that I love trivia, and he was always asking me some form of trivia. One question he asked me was, “What was the name of General Ulysses S. Grant's horse?” Everyone said, Cincinnati.
Henderson was an expert on boxing trivia, also. But the area in which he thrived was football trivia.
He asked me the question I had in my column last week — Can you name the state that has at least three colleges which have won national championships besides Florida?
