About the Owner
Daniel, Ashlee, Huxley, Hazel, & H3 coming soon!
A native of Broken Arrow born an raised, for Daniel Hendrickson, Oklahoma runs through his heart. The 32 year old has never thought about calling any where else but home. A k-12 product of Broken Arrow Public Schools, football would always be something to lean on for him. From a trying beginning, losing his mother at the age of 13 to breast cancer to having a beautiful family of 5, Daniel never thought failure was an option. Football was an escape for Daniel. When things were wrong with the world, everything was right on the football field.
Coming up through the system was a rewarding experience teaching him hard work and determination. Friends were something Daniel leaned on a lot. Daniel played on the offensive line in high school for the Tigers under then, head coach Rick Jones. Daniel was 2 year starter playing from 2001-2003 and being on the Tigers first state finalist team in 2002 and getting first team all district honors his senior year. Though being undersized for his position, heard work would pay off and received a scholarship to play at NAIA Lindenwood University for the Lions in St. Charles, MO under then head coach Patrick Ross. His freshman season, the Lions would go undefeated and clinched the 2004 HAAC Championship.
3 years later, he returned home to his beloved Oklahoma and start working in the electrical services and real estate investment industry for his uncle. While working the next 2 years for this uncle, one of his jobs became mending fences on his uncle's various rental properties. Doing anything to make extra cash, when the ice storm of 2007 hit Tulsa, Daniel found an opportunity to make money by hauling off limbs for people that didn't want to wait for the city to pick them up. He would later use this cash to start his fence company. One day, while building a gate at a rental property for his uncle, one of his fellow work mates suggested that he was pretty good at building fences and should start out on his own. The light bulb went off. Daniel starting building fences as a one man show on the weekends. As work grew, it was hard balancing his regular full time job and the budding business he had started. When would the jump off point be? Right around the same time, his father became gravely ill. At the time, it looked as though his dad would need permanent care. If dad needed permanent care, he needed to have a job that was flexible to attend to his needs.
Daniel bit the bullet and started building fences full time starting Fence Builders of Oklahoma, LLC. Luckily by the grace of God, his dad made a full recovery. The rest is history. One beautiful, supportive wife, and three babies later, here we are. From a one man show on the weekends to a thriving, local business in the heart of Broken Arrow which currently manages 3 fence crews and services all of Green Country. Success was the only option. But what about football? Through all of it Daniel still felt a calling on his heart to coach. From 7th grade Daniel felt his calling was to teach and coach. Its kind of funny how God's path for you isn't always straight for you. The business had grown, and he now had the capability to step away from it for several hours a day. He began pursuing a way to volunteer.
In 2016 Daniel was blessed with opportunity to serve the Tigers that had given him so much by becoming the stats coordinator and helping with off season strength and conditioning. The path wasn't straight, but there were some great men along the way that helped shape who he is today including his dad, Paul Goodenough, Coach Trandy Birch, Coach Rick Jones, and his uncle Aaron Meek, to name a few.
