Golden Years

Cleveland native Coach Allan Trimble forever changed Jenks football and Jenks football forever changed him. For over two decades Coach Trimble impacted the lives of young men in the high school football program all while breaking records and winning thirteen state championships.

 Now retired, Coach Trimble is looking back at his time as Coach in his new coffee table book “Golden Years” spanning from 1996-2017. The book will include pictures throughout the years, stats on the players and inspirational messages for other coaches and athletes.

 Coach Trimble continues to inspire those around him off the field as he battles ALS- amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Coach Trimble was diagnosed with ALS in 2016. Though ALS forced him to retire from the sport that he loved, he doesn’t let that stop him, “I am greatly humbled and excited to share a very unique and personal view of my football coaching journey at Jenks High School! This book takes you through my 22 seasons and is chock-full of statistics, great photography, and detailed history of each season guaranteed to bring excitement and fond memories. But what excites me the most is all the life lessons and experiences we have included that will give readers insight and perspective of life inside our championship football program.”

 Yorkshire Publishing President Roger Chasteen is excited to produce this book and support the Trimble family as well as the community of Jenks, “We want to honor the legacy of Coach Trimble as well as share the stories of the Jenks football program and the incredible athletes that got their start here in Oklahoma.”

 “Golden Years” is available for preorder at and will be published by Yorkshire Publishing in early 2020.
