After 25 years at Hendersonville High School, the COMMANDOS head coach Bruce Hatfield decided to step down from his position.  Coach Hatfield has been the teams head coach for the past 20 seasons making him the longest tenured coach in HHS football history.  In addition to being the longest tenured coach, he also coached the most games (241), won the most games (159), and had the highest winning percentage in school history, winning 66% of his games over the past 20 years.  He took over in 1998 after Robert Lassiter left the program, he joined Hendersonville as an assistant to coach Bill Derrick before serving as an assistant coach to Coach Lassiter for 4 seasons.  Before coming to Hendersonville, Coach Hatfield worked as a football coach at Lawrence County High School.  Coach Hatfield made this program a tough team to play year in and year out, but more importantly, he held the players to high standard in everything that they did.  He mentored and helped mold teenagers into young men that go on to be successful in all aspects of their lives.  For the program, he led the team to their 1st ever state championship game during his first season in 1998.  Over the next 19 seasons, he would take the team to 3 more state championship games, make 14 playoff appearances, win 4 Region/District Championships, have the team’s only undefeated regular season, and see both of his daughters (Emily and Elizabeth graduate from HHS).  Coach Hatfield worked hard to get the program to a perennial power and his presence on the field will be greatly missed.  Everyone involved with the program would like to thank coach and his family for their dedication to this team, school, and community.
