Chandler Jenkins enters his first season as an assistant coach for the Catawba Valley baseball program in 2019-20
The first-ever National Player of the Year at Catawba Valley, Jenkins will serve as an assistant volunteer coach working specifically with outfielders and also overseeing the team on offense.
Jenkins just completed his collegiate playing career this spring at East Carolina University, where he was part of a Pirates team that made an appearance in the NCAA Super Regionals and won 47 games — the second-most victories in a single season for ECU.
"I am extremely blessed, honored and excited to be joining the CVCC coaching staff," Jenkins said. "I cannot thank coach Rozzelle enough for allowing me to begin my coaching career at a place that I called home for two years. To be able to return to my roots and have the opportunity to learn from coach Rozzelle and coach (Kris) Harvey about the ins and outs of coaching, along with helping kids develop and reach the next level, means the world to me."
