Coach Mack was born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised on the southside of the city. No stranger to dealing with adversity he started playing sports at an early age. Looking to escape from unsatisfying realities sports became an outlet. Eventually sports became a passport to a brighter future. In 2006 he gained an athletic scholarship to play for a top ranked D2 program in the nation and HBCU at Fort Valley State University before injuries cut his playing time short. While volunteering with the Big Brothers Big Sister program in his down time, he developed a real passion for coaching and mentoring. 2014 He started a developmental basketball mentoring program for at-risk youth to teach them how to use basketball and life skills, as a bridge to bettering their lives, the lives of their families, and the lives of the community in which they reside in. Coach Jenkins has experience on many different levels of coaching and mentoring athletes from Elementary School ages to Collegiate and semi-professional level. He has attended many coaching clinics and training hosted by various organizations such as Vertimax, USA Basketball, NIKE, University of Texas, University of Texas San Antonio, Special Olympics and more. A certified Vertimax Trainer and basketball coach, he host developmental clinics and basketball skills training camps for athletes across the nation. Currently he is the Director of Player Development at Prince Elite Academy and Operations Manager at National Kids Hoops Association. His goal to share his and others like him experiences with athletes all over the world.
