September 14, 2011

Carnell Henderson is aware of the burden he’s placed on his Woonsocket assistant coaches. The head coach, who continues to come along after undergoing surgery in early August to repair a torn tendon in quadriceps muscle of his left leg, knows that just like the players have to step up their game whenever there’s an absence, so too does his staff.
The idea is to keep things as close to the status quo as possible until Henderson returns to the sidelines, which he is optimistic will happen this season.

In a week’s time the PawSox went from mighty division champs to postseason wallflowers. One Saturday night, they’re basking in the glow of winning the I.L. North. The next Saturday sees the clubhouse resemble that of a funeral parlor, with players quietly exchanging farewell handshakes and hugs while gathering up their personal belongings for the trip back home.
