Bio Bits

Beach Bits:
 Jennings and Matt Fuerbringer won at least one AVP tournament each season from 2004-08.
His win in Seaside Heights in 2006, along with his wife's Kerri Walsh, made them the second married couple to win on the same weekend, joining Mike and Patty Dodd, who accomplished the feat four times. They repeated the achievement in the 2007 finale in San Francisco, then again in Manhattan Beach win 2013.
 Jennings' partnership with Keenan to open the 2010 season marked his first event with a partner other than Fuerbringer since July 2007, snapping a string of 41 domestic and international team events played alongside Fuerbringer.
 Jennings and Kevin Wong won an FIVB event in The Hague in 2010 after losing in the qualifier, only to reach the main draw via the lucky loser draw. The duo became the first FIVB team to win an event after earning a lucky loser berth. The tournament was just the second time the two had played together.


2012: Jennings formed a new partnership with Bill Strickland, reaching one main draw in five FIVB events. Domestically the duo had a best of seventh in three events.
2011: Jennings continued playing with Wong on the FIVB Tour, with a best of fifth in eight events together. Jennings also played twice internationally with different partners. Domestically he played four tournaments on three different tours with four different partners, winning one of those with Pedro Salgado.
2010: Jennings began a new partnership with Brad Keenan, placing ninth in their first two AVP events as well as their first two FIVB tournaments. On the AVP Tour the duo ended the season with a best of third in six events. They advanced to their first FIVB semifinal in the Moscow Grand Slam, their best finish in the 10 events together. Jennings played in the last two FIVB tournaments with Kevin Wong. In the FIVB season finale in The Hague, Jennings and Wong won the title, giving Jennings his first career international win.
2009: Jennings missed the AVP season opener with a foot injury. He and Fuerbringer had a best of third place on the AVP Tour, in Ocean City. Jennings led the tour in digs per game (5.65). On the FIVB Tour he and Fuerbringer earned a silver medal in Poland, in what was Jenning's first international title match, before placing fifth in the World Championships in Stavanger. They concluded their FIVB season with ninth-place matches in three Grand Slam events. 
2008: Jennings and Fuerbringer played in seven semifinals, including Manhattan Beach, and in two finals, winning in San Diego. Jennings led the tour in both digs per game (5.57) and kills per game (7.60). In an effort to qualify for the Olympics, Jennings and Fuerbringer played eight FIVB events, with a best of third. They were the third U.S. team in the Olympic qualifying, and were the fourth highest ranked team worldwide not to qualify, due to country quotas. 
2007: Jennings partnered with Mark Williams for the first 10 AVP events, with a best of third twice. Then Jennings reunited with Fuerbringer and in their fourth event made it to the finals in Boston. They played in one other semifinal before winning the season finale in San Francisco. Jennings was the ninth ranked player on tour and was second in digs per game (5.37). The pair played once on the FIVB Tour, finishing 17th. 
2006: Seven times Jennings and Fuerbringer advanced to the semifinals, winning in Seaside Heights in their only championship match, marking the fourth straight year the pair had played in the finals in New Jersey. Jennings, the seventh ranked player on tour, was third in digs per game (4.99) and sixth in kills per game (7.39). The duo had a best of 13th in five FIVB events. 
2005: Jennings and Fuerbringer played in six semifinals, and three finals. In San Diego the duo won after beating all top four seeds, and also won in Hermosa Beach. Jennings was the sixth ranked player on tour. He led the tour in digs per game (5.29) and was fifth in kills per game (7.77). 
2004: Played in two finals with Fuerbringer, including Manhattan Beach. In Belmar the duo won for the first time, winning four straight matches against teams seeded third or higher and ending a six-match losing streak in finals. The pair didn't return to the semifinals the rest of the season, but Jennings was fourth in the individual event in Las Vegas and ended as the seventh ranked player on tour. He was third in digs per game (5.42) and eighth in both aces per game (.35) and kills per game (6.92). On the FIVB Tour the duo played twice. 
2003: Reunited with Fuerbringer and the pair played in the finals of four of the first five tournaments. The duo placed third in Manhattan Beach, and Jennings ended as the fifth ranked player on tour. Internationally, the duo played six times with a best of ninth.
