Henderson, TX (KETK) Phil Castles used to play against Henderson.
Now he will lead Henderson against Kilgore.
Castles is the new football coach of the Henderson Lions.
Here is what he told KETK about the rivalry between Henderson and Kilgore.
"I've coached against Kilgore several times. I'd like to beat those guys every time because, being from there, it makes it very personal when you go home for Christmas and the holidays, to have done good against Kilgore, against your old school. I look forward to those games. I understand the rivalry between Kilgore and Henderson and all the other rivalries around the area. We spent time in Chapel Hill and Elysian Fields. We're glad to be back in the pine trees and glad to be back in Henderson."
