Happy birthday, R.C. Henderson!

Today is my father’s 86th birthday, and I’m grateful to be able to spend it with him. He was a storied high school basketball coach in North Carolina and played the game in high school, college, and the Air Force. Here, as a center on Saint Augustine’s College’s team, he takes a jumper over future Globetrotter Curley Neal.

    WOW, I am a graduate of the Class’68 at Spaulding High, and one of the teen girls that changed your diaper. 🤪 Was thinking about Coach Henderson just last week. Sure pray that he will continue to do well. Would love to communicate with you more directly.
