Ed Henick joined the Saskatoon Hilltops in 1947 and was instrumental in helping to reorganize the team that went on to win the provincial junior rugby championship that same year. At the end of the 1948 season, he turned his attention to coaching and worked his way up the administrative ladder to the level of president, a position he held in 1963 and 1964.

Still involved with the Hilltops, Henick helped form the Saskatoon Minor Flag Football League in 1957 and became commissioner of the kinsmen tackle football league in 1962.

In 1973 and 1974, Henick was elected president of Football Saskatchewan and from 1975 until 2000 held the secretary/treasurer position. He then became president of the Prairie Junior Football Conference in 1984 and 1985, and held numerous positions within the organization until 2000.

The Ed Henick All-Star game is played annually by the north/south high schools in Saskatchewan. He is a life member of both the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL) and the Saskatoon Hilltops Football Club.

Ed Henick is also a member of the Saskatoon Sports Hall of Fame.
