End of an Era: Triton’s Henderson Calls it a Career

November 06, 2017 06:49 PM

(ABC 6 News) – The Triton Cobras run for the state football tournament ended on Friday against Caledonia—the loss didn’t just mark the end of the Cobras 2017 season, but the end of head coach Don Henderson’s career on the sidelines.

After 31 seasons in charge, Henderson has officially retired as the head football coach at Triton (Henderson announced he was retiring after the season prior to the 2017 season).


Under Henderson’s watch, the Cobras reached nine state tournaments (1993-1995, 2000, 2002, 2006-2008, 2010) and won three state championships (1994 “B” champion, 2000 and 2006 AA champion).

In 31 seasons, Henderson won 251 games and lost only 84 games. Henderson’s 251 career wins is 24th all-time in Minnesota State High School football history.

According to Henderson, there is “no timeline” regarding when his replacement will be named.
