Playing For Papa Bear

  • Playing for Papa Bear was more than an experience in football, it was an experience in life. He was not only a great coach but also an individual who helped us to become who we are today. His gentleness toward all his players as well as all who went to Blakely was so evident in all his teachings. Every player meant so much to Coach Henzes. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to play for Papa Bear and to have known him as a man.
