Henington spent the last two seasons as offensive coordinator of the Eldorado Eagles football team. Prior to that, Henington was the head football coach of Los Lunas rival Belen Eagles. With Henington now leading Los Lunas, the rivalry will have more fuel in the fire. “I’m sure there’s going to be some upset people,” said Henington. “I can respect that. I’m here for the kids. I’m a Tiger now and I’m all in. I’m very excited to be back in the county and I just want to go and win.”
