ROCHESTER, Mich. – Jade Callan and Grace Jungclas have joined the athletic training staff announced Monday by Associate Athletic Director Marshall Foley. Callan joins the Golden Grizzlies after spending the past two years as an athletic trainer at ATI Physical Therapy, while Jungclas spent this past season as Assistant Athletic Trainer at Western New Mexico University.

“We are fortunate and pleased to welcome Grace and Jade to the Golden Grizzlies family,” said Foley. “Both are very talented athletic trainers with proven skill sets that reflect the Ethos of Oakland Athletics - welcoming, relationship oriented, and a commitment to providing a first-class experience for student-athletes.  These two additions are real positive for Oakland.”

While at ATI, Callan was responsible for athletic training services for Lakeland and Whitmore Lake High Schools in Michigan while also providing rehabilitative treatment to patients in a physical therapy clinic setting.  She also was an athletic trainer for the Jeff Tungate Basketball Camps from 2014-15.

Callan spent time with the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga from 2012-14 where she earned her master’s degree in athletic training working with student-athletes in volleyball, football, baseball, wrestling, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, track and cross country. Callan earned her bachelor’s degree in health sciences from Oakland in 2012.

Jungclas comes to Oakland from Western New Mexico where she worked primarily with volleyball, men’s and women’s basketball and spring football programs. She was on staff for the 2016 NCAA Division II Men’s Golf South Central Super Regional hosted by WNMU.

Prior to WNMU, Jungclas spent two years at the University of North Carolina from 2013-15 providing athletic training services for women’s soccer and softball. She was on staff during seasons that saw the women’s soccer program advance to the NCAA third round (2013, 2014) and quarterfinals (2013).

Jungclas graduated the University of Tampa in 2013, where she was the primary athletic trainer for volleyball and men’s soccer as well as football for Seminole High School.  She also has experience as an athletic trainer for the NFL Combine, East-West Shrine Bowl Game and the professional soccer team Tampa Bay Rowdies.
