Clinkenbeard was the Colorado 5A No. 1 singles runner-up the past two seasons as a junior and senior, respectively. He was consistently ranked in the Intermountain Region Top 10 and earned several sportsmanship awards during his high school career, including the 2009 Reidy Award for Sportsmanship, Leadership and Achievement.
