    If you have been to a Henry County High School athletic event over the last three years, you may have noticed him on the sideline with his loud, booming voice and his Henry County Wildcat scarf held high above his head. He is the man who leads the C-A-T-S cheers and generally gets the crowd fired up at HCHS sporting events.

    He is also the man who goes to events that are not usually on people’s radar such as cross country races, golf matches and marching band competitions.
