West Seattle grad Isaiah Jenkins is part of EWU football success

CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Persistence and patience are two apparent traits of Isaiah Jenkins' personality.

His high school career featured many accomplishments and honors. He earned first team All-Metro League Sound Division honors as both a wide receiver and defensive back. As a senior, he accounted for 434 yards on 23 receptions while hauling in five touchdown catches. In that year, he led the Wildcats to a 6-4 record and a share of the Metro League Sound Division regular season title. As a junior, he helped West Seattle win its first eight games before the team fell in the playoffs. For that season, Jenkins earned second team All-Metro League Sound Division honors both as a wide receive and defensive back.
During his Eastern Washington football career, the 2010 West Seattle High School graduate has persevered through good and hard times.

Following a redshirt 2010 season, Jenkins saw significant action at the end of the season to earn his letter.
