Burlingame Dragons Vice President Mike Jenkins joins newly branded Phoenix Rising FC of the United Soccer League as their Vice President of Operations.

With several Dragons players making the jump to the professional ranks in the past few weeks, it was only natural that front office staff would have similar opportunities to test themselves at a higher level. 

Mike Jenkins: "I was fortunate to spend two plus years with the Dragons and was able to see how a franchise built itself from the ground up into one of the most highly respected organizations in the PDL. The hard work and dedication of all those involved coupled with the overwhelming support from the local fan base made working for the organization truly rewarding. I am really thankful to Jordan, Nick, David, etc. for putting me in the position to be able to take the next step forward in my career as I leave for Phoenix and the USL." 

Dragons President Jordan Gardner: "We wish Mike the very best of luck at Phoenix Rising FC. He did an outstanding job in his time with the Dragons, and was a big part of the success we had both on and off the field. I know Brett, Berke and the other PHX Rising FC owners will be pleased to add such a dedicated and hard working individual to their front office."
