Keith Henry, age 54 of Coalfield, passed away on Saturday, December 5th due to complications associated with COVID-19. He was Coalfield High School’s Head Football Coach and Assistant Principal.
Coach Henry had been the football coach at the high school since 2008, compiling a 115-49 coaching record. In addition to his on-the-field success, he led the Yellow Jackets on several deep playoff runs, and coached two Mr. Football Award winners.
Keith Henry will be remembered as an educator and mentor to many Coalfield students, whether they played football for him or not.
Coalfield School was closed today (Monday, December 7th) but will reopen to students tomorrow.
We will have more information as soon as funeral arrangements are announced.
