Coach Robert "Bo" Henning is leaving as EBHS varsity mens basketball coach after capturing the NJSIAA Section 4 title.
Robert “Bo” Henning started coaching basketball for East Brunswick High School 25 years ago and measures success not just by wins, but by the people he came to know along the way. “I’ve gotten so much from this,” said Henning, who announced last week that he will be stepping down as Bears coach. “I’ll miss it so much.
