Steve Henderson is a PCA Senior Trainer. Coach Henderson has his BA from San Jose State University and his MA from St. Mary's College. He is a History Teacher and Football Coach at Aragon H.S in San Mateo. He is a Fulbright Scholar, having participated in educational leadership initiatives in Eastern Europe and the UK.

As Henderson explains here, one of the most important focuses for his coaching staff is "connecting deeply" with the players. He starts each season by talking to the team about why they play and what type of culture they want to have to be successful. This connection allows him to better understand their motives and to keep the game fun for them.
