In 2011 and 2012, Jeffrey wrote one of the most memorable series of sports columns ever published in London: Out Of My League. Borrowing a page from hall of fame writer George Plimpton (one of Jeffrey’s mentors), Jeffrey joined notable London and area athletes on the field in order to write about his true-life experiences. He played tackle football with the CCH Crusaders, practiced with the Canadian champion London Lightning basketball squad, and much more – you can read his story about cheering with the Western Mustangs here at the Journalism section. Said Jeffrey, “Out of my league was one of the most rewarding experiences of my entire career to-date. And to do this while competing as a disabled athlete made it even more of a major accomplishment.”
