Jensen Selected as EHS Softball Coach
Enid Public Schools has chosen Chris Jensen to lead the Enid High School softball program.
He will begin his duties immediately.
EPS Athletic Director Billy Tipps said Jensen will be an exciting change to the EHS softball program which includes both fast- and slow-pitch teams.
“Coach Jensen has coached in several programs at EHS,” said Tipps. “I really like the way he ran the eighth-grade football program and see him bringing similar qualities to the Pacers.”
Jensen began his coaching career at Norman North High School in 2001 as an assistant baseball coach. He then joined the EHS staff as the EHS assistant baseball coach in 2002 where he helped coach for 17 years. Jensen has also coached for American Legion and Enid Majors Connie Mack where he has led the teams to earning numerous state championship titles.
Jensen received his bachelors of science in health, physical education, and recreation as well as a masters in education leadership from East Central University. He holds professional certifications in the following areas: health, physical education, driver’s education, middle school science, US government, Oklahoma history, world history, geography, US history, economics, and pre-k-12 principal.
Jensen expressed his enthusiasm to begin a new chapter for the EHS softball program.
“I am privileged to get this opportunity,” said Jensen. “These girls can win and we will prove that, while having fun and making memories. All sports begin and end with fundamentals.”
Jensen and his wife, Kellie, have three children, one attending Waller Middle School, and twins attending Eisenhower Elementary.
Jensen replaces Danielle Smith, who was head softball coach at EHS for the last three years.
Tipps also said that Jensen’s positive attitude will be a great addition to the EHS softball program.
“He’s got a great work ethic and the right demeanor,” said Tipps. “He’s got experience and we felt really strong about his character and what he could bring to the softball program. His knowledge of softball and baseball will help take our program to the next level.”
