Billy Henderson (born June 2, 1928) is a former American football player and coach. Henderson has coached for Furman University, the University of South Carolina, and four high schools. Henderson is a native of Georgia, graduated from high school in Macon, and is an alumnus of the University of Georgia (UGA). At UGA, Henderson was on the football and baseball teams
Henderson received his first head coaching job at Willingham High School in Macon as an athletic director and coach of varsity baseball and football. His first season there, he was building the program and went winless in football. Henderson was determined to better the program and came up with something called McWill Night. These nights were intended to promote fitness in the community. This program was open to any athlete that wanted to better him or herself, not just his or her players. He recruited people like Gov. Jimmy Carter, Lester Maddox, Carl Sanders, and Vince Dooley to ensure his program would be successful. The event was held in the Macon Coliseum and consisted of more than 2,000 participants and 6,350 spectators. Billy drew national coverage from the Sunday newspaper in Macon. Coach Henderson also started a gymnastics team, became the head of summer recreation programs, and volunteered for programs such as Big Brothers, Boy Scouts, and the YMCA.[1]:92
After all of his successes he moved to Athens, Georgia to coach at Clarke Central High School. His biggest sacrifice was not being able to coach his son who was the quarterback at Mount de Sales in Macon. Coach Henderson was still able to keep up with his son and attend several playoff games. By 1974, Henderson led the Clarke Central Gladiators to a 5-4-1 record.[1]:107
