Trey Henderson's Resume
Team: College of William & Mary
Organization: NCAA Football
Position: Defensive Backs Coach


A nine-year veteran of the Tribe's program, Trey Henderson has proven to be an invaluable resource for the staff, both on the field as an assistant and in the state-of-the-art Laycock Football Center as the team's video coordinator.

In addition to serving as the safeties coach and video coordinator, he was promoted to the Tribe’s recruiting coordinator last spring.

Working alongside defensive backs coach Tom Clark, Henderson helped develop one of the nation’s premier free safeties last season in Jerome Couplin III. In addition to earning first-team All-America honors by four organizations, Couplin was a finalist for the Buchanan Award and signed a free agent contract with the Detroit Lions.

Couplin became the third Tribe standout to benefit from Henderson’s tutelage before going on the NFL, as cornerback Derek Cox (third round draft pick by Jacksonville Jaguars in 2009) and B.W. Webb (fourth round draft pick by the Dallas Cowboys in 2013) also advanced to the professional ranks after outstanding collegiate careers at the College.

In addition to organizing and coordinating the Tribe’s recruiting efforts, Henderson serves as W&M’s primary recruiter in Southwest Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri and Illinois.  

In his time on campus, Henderson has gathered a wide-range of experience in working with both sides of the ball and has been heavily involved in collecting, editing and preparing practice and game footage for the staff, using the team's DVSport software editing system. He also played a lead role in helping to organize and implement the program's networked video editing systems in the newly dedicated Joe Pumilia Audio/Visual Suite.

Henderson came to Williamsburg in 2006 after working for Overhead Door Company of Central Va., where he arranged more than $180,000 in sales. While working in sales, Henderson also coached football at Hopewell High School, where he served as the defensive backs and wide receivers coach for the previous three seasons and helped guide the Blue Devils to the 2003 AAA State Championship. 

Henderson also spent time as an assistant wrestling coach at Benedictine High School in Richmond, sending two wrestlers to the Prep National Tournament. 

A four-year letterwinning defensive back at Randolph-Macon College, Henderson started three years in the secondary and was the Yellow Jackets' co-captain in 2001, while also spending three seasons on the baseball team. He received his Bachelor of Arts in economics and business from RMC in 2002 and completed a Master's of Science in Sport Leadership at Virginia Commonwealth University in December of 2006. 

Henderson, whose complete name is Herman Allen Henderson, III, is an active member of American Football Coaches Association and the Virginia High School League. 

He enjoys fishing, golfing and spending time at Claytor Lake. Henderson resides in Williamsburg with his wife, Summers, and their sons, Claytor (5) and Corbin (1).
