As a HT student, Henry was a basketball and baseball player and captain.  Orphaned at 16, he began his basketball coaching career in 1924 as a player-coach on the basketball team.  After graduating from HT and law school, he was hired as the first basketball and baseball coach to work in the newly constructed HTHS building at Division and Cleaver. The new gymnasium was completed under his tenure.

When Holy Trinity joined the Catholic League in 1945, Henry was head coach of the football team, while remaining head basketball and baseball coach.  He led the school to its first ever championship at the 1948-49 Fenwick Junior Basketball Tournament, with the underdog Tigers triumphing against their much bigger Catholic League rivals. He later served with distinction as President of the Catholic League Coaches Association and the co-coach of the Catholic League all-star baseball team against the Chicago Public League all-stars.  He also played professional basketball.  He was among the first group of inductees into the Catholic League Hall of Fame in 1963 and he was a charter inductee in the HTHS Athletic Hall of Fame in 1999.
