Jon Heck, MS, ATC- Associate Director of Athletics and Recreation
-
I graduated from William Paterson Univerisity in 1989 (it was just a college back then) with a BS in Movement Science/ Athletic Training and Minors in Literature and Psychology.  I earned my Master's Degree at the University of Florida in 1991 in Exercise and Sports Science/ Athletic Training/ Sports Administration (Good Fun).  I then jumped on board here in '91.  In 2008 I made the transition from Coorinator of Athletic Training to Associate Director of Athletics and Recreation. Since my start at Stockton I have published 14 athletic injury related articles (but who's counting).  I have presented at a several sports medicine symposiums, including the International Symposium on Head and Neck Injuries in Sports, in Atlanta Georgia and the NATA National Convention in New Orleans.  I was an editor for Current Concepts in Sports Medicine from 1993-96.  And I was an Associate Editor for the Journal Sports Medicine Update through 2004.  My favorite cartoon character?  Daffy Duck (... and I'm talking the old Daffy Duck's, before he was Bug's lackey.)

Chris Klenk, MEd, ATC, CSCS- Assistant Athletic Trainer

I graduated from Temple University with a BS in Phys. Ed. concentrating in Athletic Training in 1990 and a MEd in the same degree in 1993. After undergraduate studies, I worked for a clinic in Philadelphia which contracted me out to Cheltenham High School. After the clinic was bought and sold 4 times in 8 years, I decided to work solely in the academic setting. I was the part time Athletic Trainer at Washington Township High School from January 2000 to June 2002. I started here at Stockton in August 2002. I am also an Adjuct Professor at Rowan University. I am married to Shawn who is also an Athletic Trainer and we have three children, Taylor born August 1997, Jessie born July 2000 and Max born Sept 2001. Email: klenkc@stockton.edu

Tracy Pienkos, MPT, ATC- Assistant Athletic Trainer
-

I received my Athletic Training degree from East Stroudsburg University and have been practicing since 1996. I then returned to school and obtained my Master of Physical Therapy Degree from Richard Stockton College of New Jersey in 2002. While attending school I was also a graduate assistant in the athletic training department. I am currently working fulltime as a physical therapist for Go PT in Galloway, NJ and staying out of trouble by working parttime at Stockton. (on the right in the photo)

I enjoy almost all sporting everts and a good competitive battle is always good to watch. My favorite athletes include, Joe Montana, Steve Young, Andre Agassi, and Derek Jeter. I enjoy following Duke Basketball and Coach K, even though soccer was my sport during school. I played 3 years of collegiate soccer until tearing my ACL. In my spare time I enjoy dabbling in the game of golf, and spending time with family and friends. Email: Trace528@aol.com




Brian Corbett, MS, ATC, CSCS- Assistant Athletic Trainer

I graduated from Salisbury University in 2003 with a BS degree in Athletic Training. While attending Salisbury University I was fortunate enough to work at the Richard Stockton University as a 3 month intern as part of the athletic training curriculum. After graduating, I moved back to my hometown to work as the Head Athletic Trainer at Egg Harbor Township High School from 2003-2006. I went on to earn my Masters of Science degree (2008) in Sports Medicine from the University of Pittsburgh. While living in Pittsburgh, I was a Graduate Assistant Athletic Trainer for the Pittsburgh Panthers Football team. I once again have returned to my roots to work for The Stockton Ospreys to diversify my experience outside of football. Though if there is talk of starting a football team here….SIGN ME UP!! I enjoy college football, golf, shooting pool, and spending time with my wife Anne (Stockton PT ’05) and dog Basher.

Steve Janik, MS, ATC- Assistant Athletic Trainer

Before football meant anything, I attended and graduated from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ with a BS in Exercise Science and Sports Studies (‘90). I went on to Master Science at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA (’92) where they didn’t even play football until this year. My Athletic Training career started at football crazed Woodrow Wilson High School in Camden (1992 – 2000) and continued part time at equally football-centric Cherokee High School in Marlton (2001-2004). Exhausted from all that football, I decided to become a full time stay at home dad for my three daughters – Molly, Ellen and Anna. I’m easing my way back into Athletic Training with this cozy little job at Richard Stockton College. If there’s any talk of starting a football team here, I QUIT!

I live in Marlton with my wife Nancy and the girls. In my spare time I like golf, hiking, listening to ‘70s and ‘80s punk and new wave bands you’ve never heard of and, of course, watching football on TV.




Chad Scott, MA, ATC- Assistant Athletic Trainer

I received my undergraduate degrees in Exercise Physiology and Sports Medicine from East Carolina University…PIRATES! After graduation, I moved back home and enrolled at Rowan University. I graduated in 1998 with a MA in Student Personnel Services, otherwise known as Counseling. I then spent the next two exciting years as the Certified Athletic Trainer at St. Joseph High School in Hammonton NJ and for the past ten years with the Winslow Twp. School District. Stockton College hired me the fall semester of 2009 and I have enjoyed every minute of it. There is so much excitement and passion within the college athlete and I look forward to spending more time with the Stockton athletes and the Athletic Training Staff. I live in Medford, with my two dogs, Reese and Knuckles. In my limited spare time I live life to the absolute fullest and during the summer, my toes are buried in the sand of Sea Isle City’s 44th St. beach. Go Ospreys! Email:



Kevin Briles, ATC, CSCS, EMT-B - Assistant Athletic Trainer

I graduated from Gettysburg College in the Spring of 1997 with a degree in Health and Exercise Sciences with an emphasis in Athletic Training. After spending a year as a graduate assistant in Temple University Hospital's Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine, I was hired by Kessler Memorial Hospital to provide athletic training services to the Delsea Regional School District. After serving about 4 years as Kessler's Director of Athletic Training Services, I was then hired outright by Delsea, where I've served as the District Athletic Trainer and Assistant to the Athletic Director since the fall of 2004.

My wife Kim and I have been married since 2001. We have three great kids, Elizabeth, Kevin and Bobby. In what spare time I have, I enjoy jogging, weight training, and reading. I'm also a fan of local high school sports.

Joe Masters, ATC, CSCS- Assistant Athletic Trainer

I’m a graduate of West Chester University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Health & Physical Education and Athletic Training. My career as a Certified Athletic Trainer has taken me too many cool and exciting places. I had the opportunity to work here at Stockton back in the day. That’s when the Training Room was a closet in the basement of J-Wing. Jon Heck has brought this program a long way. I developed and operated the first Sports Medicine Clinic in this part of South Jersey. Atlantic Shore Sports Medicine which later became Pat Croce’s Sports Physical Therapist. I worked as an Athletic Trainer through the 90’s with The United States Olympic Committee which gave me the chance to work the Olympic Games in Atlanta in 1996. After the Olympics I followed Pat Croce and helped to bring the Philadelphia 76ers Basketball Team back to contention for the NBA Championship. Shaq & Kobe crushed us in the finals but what a ride!! After the Sixers years I returned back to this area, started a web based ice cream business which we took public, then I returned back to the profession of Athletic Training which is my true passion. And also back to the Richard Stockton College where it all started many moons ago. My wife Beverlee and I have lived in Somers Point, NJ since the beginning where we raised our 3 children who are now adults.

Dave Heyel, ATC, ATR, CSCS, CSCS-CPT - Assistant Athletic Trainer

I began at Stockton on a part-time basis in September of 1998. I graduated from West Chester University in 1989 with a BS in Health, PE and Athletic Training. I was the Head Athletic Trainer at Delsea Regional High School from 1989 through 1998. I have been an athletic trainer for the NJSIAA Wrestling Championships every year since 1992. I am currently employed full-time as a Heath and Physical Education Teacher at Delsea Regional. I'm married to Gabrielle Chinnici and we have a son, Matthew, born on April 23,1997 and a daughter, Mariana, born on March 22, 2000. I am currently the coach of my son¹s soccer team, the Pittsgrove Pumas and my daughter¹s soccer team, the Pittsgrove Piranhas. Due to the crazy schedule of coaching and being on the secretary of the Pittsgrove Soccer Club and on the board of trustees of the Elmer Swim Club (where my children swim in the summer), I have greatly reduced my hours working at Stockton. Hopefully when the smoke clears I¹ll be back working more hours at Stockton.
