Over his 17 coaching years, Jeffrey has been responsible for many teams
breaking offensive records, both rushing and in the air, and he has developed
numerous league MVPs, All-Americans, and All-Canadians.
"I feel so lucky and thankful that I am able to do what I love to do -- every
day -- and even get paid for it," he laughs. "I particularly enjoy coaching
university football. I've always been impressed with the enthusiasm, the
motivation, and the spirit shown by students."
Jeffrey's coaching philosophy is one that promotes balance and perseverance.
He searches for players who are self-starters and high achievers and not just
in football, but in life. Jeffrey feels his Mounties fall into these categories and
that they are special people.
"Our guys had a great year, and it was due to their commitment off season,
and their continued support of the program and each other through the lean
years. As their careers ended it was nice to see our seniors and our leaders reap
the benefit of their united efforts."
It is with pride and satisfaction that Jeffrey speaks about his team's success.
Though the 2010 AUS Coach of the Year trophy has "Kelly Jeffrey" inscribed
on it, he is the first to acknowledge it is a "TEAM" award -- all the way.
