During the Gators Pro Day, Jefferson lost about 6 pounds and was much happier with his performance and thought he, “…improved tremendously.”Jefferson noted that his, “…hips felt fluid in the drills.” He also expressed that he’s confident in his future in football, because he’s eager to learn from the vets to help make him even more versatile.
He gives a lot of thanks to the tough coaching from both head coach Dan Mullen and strength and conditioning coach Nick Savage.
