Like his brother, Jeff is a two-way star for the Warriors while playing both defensive end and tight end. He ended last season with 42 tackles and 16 receptions as he was named 1st team All-State underclass on the DL. It was a tough year for Westlake as they went 5-5 after finishing 14-0 when Jeff was a sophomore.
"We had a lot of injuries last season and had to struggle through adversity. Everything clicked when I was a sophomore and I think we should be real good again next year."
Jeff runs a 4.8 40 and has a bench press of 250 with a squat of 405. We asked him to describe himself as a player and to check his preference for which side of the ball he will play on at the college level.
"I'm a pass rushing defensive end with speed off the edge. My brother was a finesse guy who would use his speed to get around a guy but I can also be more physical at times. I like playing defense better than offense but I'll play wherever the coaches want me to play, it doesn't matter to me at all."
