Clay Jenkins is entering his third season as Pitching Coach and his first season as Associate Head Coach for the Plymouth State University baseball team. An Easton, N.H native, Jenkins was a standout pitcher at both nearby Profile High School and then Franklin Pierce University.
During his collegiate playing career (2004-2007), Jenkins was a versatile pitcher used in a variety of situations. As a captain and academic All-American his senior year, Jenkins helped lead Franklin Pierce University to the Division II College World Series for the second consecutive year by accumulating a 6-1 record and one save with a 1.88 ERA in 22 appearances. Among the all-time leaders in both single season and career appearances, Jenkins brings not only experience, but a strategic mind-set to the Panther pitching staff.
After playing at and attending Franklin Pierce University, Jenkins played professionally for a short stint in the Frontier League with the Kalamazoo Kings in Kalamazoo, MI. In addition to his Bachelor’s degree in Finance/Management from Franklin Pierce, Jenkins earned his Master’s degree in Global Business and Project Management from Southern New Hampshire University in 2012.
