HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - With a team filled with loads of talent and experience, the Henderson County football program is ready to make some noise this year.

Henderson County is coming off a 7-5 season, falling in the second round of the 2021 playoffs. Colonels head coach Josh Boston returns 20 seniors to this year’s team, along with nine starters on defense and seven on offense.

Defensively, Henderson County is led by Purdue commit Saadiq Clements, as well as Jaheim Williams. On offense, Williams teams with Jordan Wright to form a potent running back tandem. In front of those two, Eastern Kentucky commit Bryce Tapp leads a powerful offensive line.

“This is the biggest senior class that I know of Henderson has had in a long time, you know, we got 20 seniors, and so, big group,” Boston said. “They’ve come through together, great chemistry amongst them. We’re still trying to find our mix in the secondary – the two guys we lost last year were both safeties for us. Still trying to figure out our quarterback spot. We got two guys still rolling in – Max Thompson, he’s a junior and then Trajdon Davis is a sophomore. Taking some reps in seven-on-seven and the run game.”

“I feel great about the season. All my teammates are ready for the season to start,” Clements said. “This is supposed to be the biggest year in [Henderson] County. They’ve been talking about this since we were in seventh or eighth grade. We’re here to show that we’re going to be the greatest class of [Henderson] County.”

Henderson County kicks off its season at home against Calloway County on Aug. 19.
