The Oakland High School football team is celebrating their first win in 4 years.
KTVU reports things changed for the team when the school hired Coach T.
Terry Hendrix Jr. teaches elementary aged kids in the district and was hired in April to lead the varsity players at Oakland High.
Last week, Oakland High beat Highlands High in Sacramento 16-8 – the first win for the team in four years.
"I'm the coach, so I had to play it cool, like this happens all the time," Hendrix told KTVU. "But inside, I was ecstatic."
Players say that Coach T makes the players know that he – and the wider community – cares about them.
