Hennigan to Serve as Acting Head Coach for Center Varsity Football Game

Coach Derrick Hennigan will serve as the acting head coach for the game against Center ISD on Friday, September 6th.  At this time, Coach Derek Fitzhenry has been placed on administrative leave.  No decisions have been made regarding the status of Coach Fitzhenry.

In an effort to dispel rumor and debunk misinformation circulating in the media, the district reiterates the following information: Because this is a personnel issue, the school district is legally and ethically bound not to provide any details. Any statements made regarding the issues from unofficial sources are speculation and rumor.   No decisions have been made regarding the status of Coach Fitzhenry.  The district is looking into the issues and it will be addressed at the Board meeting on Monday, Sept. 9, 2013.

The varsity team for the Pirate football team won their season opener over Van last week at Pine Tree in the new stadium with a score of 42-38.  The game featured 1,065 total yards and 47 first downs.

Two key defensive players for Pine Tree were Tre Devine, who was in on several tackles and intercepted a pass late in the first half, and Edwin Paz, who sacked Maddox in the final 20 seconds on Van’s final drive.  Read the remainder of the story in the Longview News Journal.
