His 24 wins over teams from higher classifications were the most wins of any baseball program in the state of South Carolina over higher class programs. His teams compiled a 95-7 region record, winning 50 of their last 51 region games. His teams averaged 23 wins per season at the high school level. Henson’s teams compiled a string of 82 consecutive games without being shutout.

Prior to Henson’s arrival at Landrum, the Cardinals had won one state title in the previous 26 seasons with that title coming in 1975. Now in his second season as the Crusaders skipper, Henson hopes to translate that same level of success at the collegiate level.
