Matt Jimenez joined our training staff in the Summer of 2012.
Matt will graduate from Montclair State University in May of 2013 with a B.S. Degree in Physical Education. He is currently satisfying his student teaching obligations to become certified to teach Phys. Ed full time in New Jersey. In addition to pursuing his teaching certification requirements, Matt has been an assistant football coach for Elmwood Park High School the last two years. His role as running backs & linebackers coach has helped turnaround the Elmwood Park program in just two years.
Jimenez is a perfect fit for our newly expanded Strength & Conditioning Center because he loves to help young athletes. His 15 year playing career in football & coaching experience gives him an understanding of the rigors of sports and he knows the importance of training properly.
While playing tailback at Montclair State, Matt amassed nearly 1,500 rushing yards & scored 10 touchdowns. You would never know Matt was so accomplished on the gridiron with his humble and easy going demeanor, but he does know when to crank up the intensity in the GE BackYard.
Matt was born and raised in Waldwick, NJ and currently resides there. He played Football, Basketball & Baseball growing up down the street and he is the oldest of three brothers. Like his good friend & GE Strength Coach, Kevin Cline; Matt's true passion was for Football in which he excelled as a tailback and linebacker at Waldwick. His Leadership in high school was recognized by his teammates and he was the Captain of the Warriors as a senior.
Matt will be invaluable this Spring & Summer as we initiate the GE Throwback Football School. We will teach Pee-Wee's up to Pro's Football Technique & Specific Football Work in the GE BackYard.
