Getting the Edge on Jeff

What is something most people don’t know about you?

Some people know that I played Football at Lewis & Clark College but most people don’t know that I hold the All-time Record for career receiving yards (2,770 yards) and receiving touchdowns (28).

What was your worst job?

In one of my high-school summer jobs I worked in a strawberry plant and had to clean and wash out the crates as people unloaded the berries. It was fast paced and extremely hard to keep up.

What was your first job?

When I was in 4th grade I picked strawberries for the summer…see a trend here?
