In both 2007 (with coach Hemelsoat) and 2009, Corwin led Thurston High School to two Midwestern League championships, while adding a 2nd place finish in 2008. Corwin has also led the Colts to three-consecutive 6th place finishes (2007, 2008 and 2009) at the Oregon State 5A volleyball tournament, while also named Midwestern League Coach of the Year after leading the Colts to an undefeated league record in 2009.
“I am very excited about the prospect of coaching at Oregon Institute of Technology and want to thank Mike Schell for showing his confidence in what I want to accomplish here at OIT.” Corwin continued, “I have been fortunate enough to step into a program with some excellent players, terrific students, and wonderful people who have represented this school very well. It is clear to me that the future of this program is very bright and I am very happy that Klamath Falls will be home for me and my family.”
Corwin graduated from Western Oregon University in 1999 with a BA in History, while gaining his Master of Teaching degree from Pacific in 2004. Jason and his wife of 17 years, Katie, have two children, Haley (14) and Carson (9).
