Trinity High School Football Camp Aug 10, 2017 (copy)

Troy Jensen went 8-22 in his three seasons in charge of Trinity. He has accepted a job at Alvernia, according to a press release by the high school.

Troy Jensen’s tenure at Trinity is over after three years.

The school released a statement Monday afternoon stating that Jensen, a Mechanicsburg native, has resigned and will be become a position coach at Division III Alvernia, located in Reading.

The statement said it is seeking applicants immediately, and those interested must apply by March 19.

The Shamrocks went 8-22 under Jensen, who taught business and technology the past two years, replacing longtime coach Bill Ragni after the 2014 season.

It’s a new challenge for the former San Jose State defensive back, who joins a squad that will embark on its first season. The Golden Wolves are coached by Ralph Clark and compete in the Middle Atlantic Conference.

The new Trinity coach will deal with some sizable departures from a 3-7 program. Among the notable seniors graduating in a few months are quarterback Tommy Kirchhoff, running backs/linebackers Tre Moody and Colby Rigg, receiver/DB Tresjon Ruiz, and lineman/long snapper Hunter Becker.

This is the third head coaching change in the area this offseason; Red Land replaced Chad Weaver, who resigned to be with his family, with former skipper Frank Gay, and Mechanicsburg cut ties with Billy Furman after one season, hiring Anthony Rose in January.
