Herndon was the face of EHS tennisIt's going to be a major adjustment for me seeing someone other than Darrell Herndon as the Enid High School tennis coach.Herndon is the last EHS coach remaining who was at his current position when I came to this newspaper in the summer of 1978.He certainly made my job easier.Herndon might have been the most organized coach I've dealt with.He always knew the impact a certain tournament would have on future seeding information.You could count on him to call from a tournament site with the results instead of waiting until he got home.Herndon might have scared his first girls team with his style, but those girls grew to love him as a coach.He learned to joke with them.Herndon can laugh now about how he locked up the girls equipment during the lunch break at the 1988 state tournament.That's when EHS won its first title.He cared deeply about his players.Herndon did his best to try to put seniors in a position to win a state individual championship.Herndon said that was the greatest disappointment of his coaching career.He mellowed through the years.Herndon wasn't quite as intense during the preparations for the state tournament as he used to be.Herndon's biggest thrill might have been coaching his daughter, Heather, and son, Heath.He said he regretted the time he had to spend away from them when he was coaching football.He didn't apologize if he spent a little more time watching Heather or Heath.He hoped people would understand. He didn't show favorites in the lineup.Heather played two years on the varsity.Heath didn't make the varsity until his senior year. The Herndon men occasionally would have a father-son argument.Coach Herndon said his kids were less afraid of him than their teammates.As a coach Herndon might have had higher expectations.Six state championships - five girls and one boys - is a legacy to be proud of.He indeed was the face of Enid tennis.

Former Enid High football assistant Darrell Herndon, whose brother, Bob, played for the Sooners in the 1950s, said Bomar was a "knucklehead.''"It's not too awfully surprising,'' Herndon said."He has been caught two or three times for (underage) drinking.He hurt a lot of people other than himself.''Herndon said the boosters weren't as much of a problem in his brother's time.
