Brody Henderson - Assistant Coach
Hello everyone! My name is Brody Henderson, and I recently joined the Claremont Cross Country Team as the Assitant Coach. From a young age, I admired sports and grew up running with all the local programs, from Coach Snoopy's team to El Roble and later with Claremont High School; and I was Captain my senior year. After high school, I ran my first year at Mount Sac Antonio College, and recently have just transitioned into running for fun; and have been focusing my admiration for sports into obtaining my doctorate in Physical Therapy.
As a former runner on the Claremont High team, I am elated to have the opportunity to support fellow runners in discovering their spark for running while challenging themselves to grow in the sport and have fun while doing it. I am eager to begin and can't wait to see what these future athletes accomplish; Go Pack!
