Jeff has been a strength and conditioning coach for the past 9 years. Jeff graduated from Eastlake High School in Chula Vista, California where he was a three-year Varsity letterman in basketball and led his team to the CIF title in 2001. Upon graduating from high school, Jeff enrolled at the University of California Davis. During his four years at Davis, Jeff completed a grueling internship as a student athletic trainer. Some of Jeff’s responsibilities included learning and applying the principles of injury prevention and sports rehabilitation with all the student athletes. 

While interning, Jeff was assigned as the head athletic trainer for the men’s water polo team. Jeff remained active while in college participating in intramural basketball and football. He received his Bachelors of Science degree in Exercise Biology with an emphasis in Athletic Training in the summer of 2005.

In the spring of 2007, Jeff continued his educational journey by enrolling at San Diego State University to pursue a Master of Art degree in Kinesiology. While attending San Diego State, Jeff completed a manuscript study entitled “Comparing Preseason Frontal and Sagittal Plane Plyometric Programs on Vertical Jump Height in High School Basketball Players.” Not only was this study accepted as Jeff’s final project for graduation at San Diego State, but was also accepted for publication by The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, the official research journal of the National Strength and Conditioning Association. Educators from the United States and Europe have since requested the study. Jeff completed his graduate studies and received his Master of Arts degree in May of 2009.

In the winter of 2013, after gaining thousands of hours of training youth athletes, Jeff co-authored the e-book entitled: Pigskin Prep: The Definitive Youth Football Training Program.

The book is a comprehensive guide on how to properly prepare the youth football player for the physical and mental demand of the sport and how it can and should be a positive experience for all parties involved.
