Jeff is a digital sports reporter for FOX 9 who has followed the Minnesota sports scene his entire life.
Jeff grew up a diehard Gophers football and basketball fan, going to games with his dad at the Metrodome and Williams Arena. He’s also a Vikings fan, still bitter about the 1999 NFC title game loss to the Atlanta Falcons, and the 2010 loss at New Orleans featuring "12 men in the huddle out of a timeout" and Brett Favre’s infamous through across his body.
At some point, he hopes the Gophers go to a Rose Bowl, the Vikings get to a Super Bowl and the Twins win a playoff game.
Jeff graduated from Totino-Grace High School in 2000, and went onto the University of St. Thomas, getting a degree in print journalism and communications in 2004. He started out of college as the Sports Editor at the Northfield News, and spent time at KARE-11 and WCCO on their content teams before coming to Fox 9 in 2018.
