Patrick Henry Community College athletic director writes book

Book about coping with 2018 PHCC coach death and 2016 athlete death

HENRY COUNTY, Va. – Patrick Henry Community College's athletic director hopes to teach life lessons beyond the playing field.

Brian Henderson has written a book called "There's No Playbook for Death."

It's about struggling to cope with the death of the Patriots' men's basketball coach last year and a student-athlete's death in 2016.

Roughly 50 copies had been sold as of Monday and Henderson said the responses have been great.

“Being a coach, being a leader, being a director, I know I have to be the one that’s responsible for helping people move forward.  This has absolutely helped me to move forward," Henderson said.

The book is available on Amazon.
