Seaford School District Announces Hiring of Head Football Coach

Just weeks after announcing that longtime coach, Jerry Kobasa has taken the helm of Seaford Athletics, the district announced today the hiring of Dwayne H. Henry as the Head Football Coach for the Seaford Blue Jays.

Prior to becoming the head coach at Seaford, Dwayne served as the Assistant Athletic Director for Compliance at Coppin State University. During his tenure at Coppin State University, Dwayne developed a comprehensive strategic academic success plan for student athletes and as a result the school was awarded NCAA grant money in excess of one million dollars to assist student athletes at the university.

Dwayne also served as the Athletic Director at Eagle’s Nest Christian Academy while serving as offensive coordinator for the Sussex Technical High School football team. He also previously coached football at Smyrna High School.

Dwayne has also coached at the NCAA Division 1 collegiate level for his alma mater, Delaware State University, as offensive backfield coach and offensive coordinator. During his coaching tenure at DSU, they won two MEAC Championships and in 1990 the team led the entire nation in rushing for NCAA Division IAA.

Dwayne played college football while at Delaware State University, where he was a four year starter as a halfback. During his senior campaign he guided the team to its first ever MEAC Championship and a #12 ranking in the entire country. Dwayne was a teammate of former San Francisco 49’ers All-Pro wide receiver John Taylor at DSU. Dwayne currently holds the Delaware State University football record for the longest touchdown run from scrimmage.

Dwayne has been a familiar face in Delaware football since high school having played at Smyrna High School earning first team All-State honors as a running back during his senior year.
Seaford School District Welcomes Jerry Kobasa as New Athletic Director

The Seaford Blue Jays are excited to announce that Jerry Kobasa will be donning the blue and gold as the newly hired Athletic Director for the Seaford School District. Most recently the boys’ basketball head coach at Wesley College, Coach Kobasa totally rebuilt the men's program at his alma mater to one of the best in the Nation. A long-time respected fixture in Delaware sports, Kobasa took a team that had just two winning seasons in 17 years before his arrival and took them to the NCAA Tournament four times in the last six seasons.

Joining the Blue Jays in Seaford is an exciting opportunity for Kobasa who says he is looking forward to assuming the athletic director position. “I am extremely pleased to be joining the Seaford School District staff as their Athletic Director. Seaford has such a rich history with their athletes and coaches. Our goal is to bring that level of pride back to the Seaford community. I believe the Seaford Administration is committed to making this happen and I am excited to be part of that effort.”

Kobasa's athletic resume is impressive. After a star-studded football and baseball career at Wesley, he served as offensive back and quarterback coach at both Wesley and Delaware State University before accepting basketball and football coaching positions at Smyrna High School. Coach Kobasa has been associated with prominent national coaches such as Bob Huggins (West Virginia), Mike Brey (Notre Dame) and Frank Martin (South Carolina).

In 1995, he became the head basketball coach at Sussex Tech. In 2004, Coach Kobasa was named the State Coach of the Year for the second time. He has earned Henlopen Conference Coach of the Year honors three times and has been selected as the coach of a team in the Blue-Gold High School All-Star Game three times. At Sussex Tech, he won four Henlopen Conference Northern Division crowns and four Henlopen Conference Championships. He guided the Ravens to the state tournament every year and earned two final four finishes. His teams ranked in the top 10 in the state final basketball rankings in eight of his ten seasons.

Now the winningest coach in Wesley Division III history, Kobasa's college teams have produced three All-Americans, three conference players of the year, three conference rookies of the year, six ECAC All-Star selections and 11 all-region honors. The Wolverines have had a first team all-conference player in all but one of his seasons.

Inducted into the Wesley College Athletic Hall of Fame in 2001, Kobasa is also a former member of the Wesley Alumni Association Board of Directors. In addition to chairing the Board of Directors of DIAA, he has been a member of the Board of the Blue/Gold All-Star Basketball game, is the former chair of the Henlopen Conference Boys Basketball Committee, and is a member of the State Girls' High School Basketball Tournament Committee. Kobasa was reappointed to the Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association by the Governor of Delaware as a public member in June of 2007. He is a former long-time member of the Delaware Secondary Schools Athletic Association Board of Directors (the organization that preceded DIAA), the Milford Boys and Girls Club Board, and is a former President of the Henlopen Conference and the Henlopen Basketball Coaches Association. He is also a former President of the Delaware Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association. In April he was inducted into the Delaware Afro-American Sports Hall of Fame.
