What fans should know: “Jeffrey is an extremely hard worker. He’s a quiet kid who was coming (to Bristol Eastern) to work on his craft. But just because he wasn’t very vocal, you could tell, by his work ethic, he was a lead-by-example guy. Having that caliber a kid on your roster helps the other quality kids on your roster.” — Bristol Eastern’s Anthony Julius, who got to coach him for one season in 7 v. 7 competition.
