Softball Coach Spotlight – Jenny Rollins – Presented by OECU

Westmoore softball’s Jenny Rollins enters her 16th season as head coach of the Lady Jaguars and has been at the school for 19 years. Outside of softball, Rollins enjoys spending time with her family, at home, and raising her seven-year-old daughter, Reese. Last season Westmoore finished with a 28-6 record and made a trip to the state tournament in Oklahoma City. Rollins and the Lady Jaguars are looking to repeat their success again this year and make another push into October.

In her nearly two decades of experience at Westmoore, Rollins has created many wonderful memories at the school, but says that being a part of Westmoore’s first fastpitch state title in 2018 stands above the rest.

“I have so many memories of teams and athletes, but our first state championship definitely holds a special place,” Rollins said.

For Rollins, leadership is an important quality not only for coaches but for players as well. She believes that true leaders are at their best when they enable others to be successful, confident, and do not command power, but let others prosper.

“I believe leaders have to set and hold high standards of everyone, be honest, have integrity, and cannot demand those things of anyone if they do not possess them themselves,” Rollins said. “I do not believe that holding a title or position makes you a leader, rather you are living out leadership daily and pushing others to do the same.”

Rollins employs this philosophy at Westmoore and looks to establish and grow specific qualities in her players.

“We strive to build young women who have high integrity, great work ethic, and build confidence not only in their play on the field, but in everything they do,” Rollins said.

Rollins continued that her goal is for players to learn skills through softball that will allow them to be successful in all aspects of their lives.

“I hope each player learns that honesty, integrity, hard work, and persistence can take them a long way in life. Softball is not who they are, and it does not define them, rather it creates opportunities to learn to work as a team, build relationships, struggle, fail, and succeed. These are all things they will face in and after high school and developing those qualities at a young age will help them as they face adversity and success throughout life.”

Rollins looks forward to the new season and seeing how the team has matured and the way the players come together as a cohesive unit. Moreso, Rollins most enjoys seeing individual growth.

“The best is when an athlete who may have struggled last year or did not make varsity, or whatever their situation was the season before, excels in the new year,” Rollins said. “Seeing hard work pay off and an athlete experience the success of all the time they have put into their craft is the best! We are excited to see this group on the field together this season!”
