School Spotlight: Boerne High School (Boerne, Texas)

Boerne High School-located in Boerne, Texas- plays in the 4A classification of Texas High School football. They are ranked as the #36 team in the state and the #2 team in 4A classification. The Greyhounds, whose colors are purple and white, had a great year this past going 15-1 and reaching the state championship game. Winning the district under Coach Che Hendrix, this team had a great past year beating some of the toughest teams in their classification in the state. This week, I had the pleasure of talking with Coach Hendrix and got to talk to him about his program. Some of the topics include the vision he has for this team, how they had so much success this past year and how to continue this success for the future.

Talking with Coach Hendrix, I talked to him about the vision of his team. This past Boerne team made it to the state championship game, and one of the reasons why they made it to the game Coach said was how good the locker room was. This team treated each other right, and held each other accountable in the season and offseason. They strive everyday to be the best version of themselves, and that was just not in football. This staff preaches that everyday, these student-athletes need to be the best version of themselves in all aspects. Not just football, but in the classroom and with their families. Sometimes you need to work harder in one of those aspects. Working hard, however, develops character and that is something every Boerne Greyhound football player learns from Coach Hendrix and his staff. 

Asking Coach Hendrix what he envisions the future of this program, he talked about how he plans to continue to build each year. Coach does not like to compare his past teams to his current team, his main goal for the team is to be the best version of themselves every year. Each class learns lessons from the previous year and implements them in the offseason. This program has had success the past couple of years, so they know the formula to have a successful season. 

Before letting Coach Hendrix go, I ask him to highlight some of the talent on both sides of the ball.
