Stephanie Jeffers’ rugged play and domineering attitude have made her an eight-time all star in her ten-year career. She is also a three-time gold medal winner playing for the U.S. Women’s National Tackle Football Team.
Hailing from Barnstable, Mass., Jeffers collected many track and field accolades at Barnstable High School where she holds records in girls’ indoor shot put and discus. Stephanie continued refining her throwing skills at Jacksonville University and then transferred to Tulsa University, where she set school records in women’s shot put, discus, hammer, indoor shot put, and the weight throw. She is a Conference USA indoor shot put champion and five-time all-conference honoree.
Jeffers began her football career with the Columbus (Ohio) Comets in 2010, and joined Boston Women’s Football when she returned to her home state of Massachusetts in 2012.
