A 1970 graduate of Cleveland High School, Jim Fenwick donned the red and white the following year to play for the Brahmas. As a running back, he shared the backfield with Pierce Hall of Famers Mark Harmon and Jimmy Allen.

Two years later it was off to Wichita State University, where he finished his playing career while earning a degree in Education.

With football coursing through his veins, Fenwick joined the coaching ranks, spending 18 years as an assistant coach the community college and Division I levels. Serving as head coach at Pierce (1981-86), his class of 1984 squad enjoyed a perfect season, going 10-0.

After a coaching stint at Miami University (Ohio) and the University of Pacific, he returned to the San Fernando Valley as head coach at Los Angeles Valley College where his teams played in four consecutive post-season games while climbing to the number one spot in one national poll.

Again moving upward, he topped off that span when he became head coach for the Cal State Northridge Matadors (2002-06) before leaving to the University of New Mexico as offensive coordinator and then returning to the head coaching spot for Eastern Oregon University. Completing the round trip to the Valley, Fenwick returned to Valley College in 2009 as head coach.

During his tenure of 40+ years in the coaching ranks, Fenwick was named Community College Coach of the Year twice, both in 1984 and 1994.

With a love for both education and athletics, Fenwick continues to be involved in intercollegiate sports, working as athletic director at Valley College.
