Documentary filmmakers Deborah Novak and John Witek have done it again.

The Huntington duo's film, "Cam Henderson: A Coach's Story,"
was awarded an Emmy at the 43rd annual Midwestern Regional Emmy
Awards over the weekend.

Cam Henderson, who coached football and basketball at Marshall
University between 1935 and 1955, is the winningest coach in school
history with 358 wins. He's credited with inventing basketball's
zone defense and fast break.

Henderson was inducted into the Helms Athletic Foundation
N-A-I-B National Hall of Fame in 1952 and the West Virginia Sports
Hall of Fame in 1956.

The documentary includes rare footage of Henderson from private
collectors and dozens of interviews with his former athletes and
acquaintances.

They won their previous Emmy for "Ashes To Glory" which was about the 1970 Marshall plane crash.
