Percy Jenkins

Percy Jenkins



Mercersburg High School - Pennsylvania (High School)
Staunton Military Academy - Virginia (High School)

1925-26 Boston Whirlwinds (ABL)

"Jenkins" appeared on one game for the Whirlwinds, on December 21, 1925. I believe he is Harvard athlete Percy Jenkins.

Jenkins was a highly-regarded athlete at Harvard in the early 1920's. Captain of the football team, he also ran track and played baseball. Due to his busy athletic schedule, he did not play basketball at Harvard. Graduated in 1924.

There was a Percy Jenkins from Quincy, Massachusetts, born on October 2, 1899. Could be him, but not sure. There was another Percy Jenkins from Clinton, NY, died in August of 1947, that it could be.
