Jeff spent six years covering high school and college sports as the Northfield News Sports Editor from 2004-2010. That position also included blogging and writing online content.
Jeff attended the University of St. Thomas from 2000 to 2004, where he earned a degree in Print Journalism along with a minor in Communications. Jeff also covered St. Thomas athletics and interned in sports at both KARE-TV and Fox 9 during that time.
He grew up in Golden Valley and attended Totino-Grace High School. Jeff is an avid golfer who also has a passion for high school football and a wide range of sports. Jeff started the “Prep Blog” in August of 2011 with an emphasis on covering high school football around Minnesota. He also will blog about St. Thomas football as Tommie football can be heard in the fall on WCCO Radio 830 AM.
The temperatures finally warmed and the fields got cleared, and it was game on for baseball, softball, tennis, golf, lacrosse and track and field. Now many teams have had at least two weeks outside with several games per week, so why not start the playoffs?
Seniors at the University of St. Thomas will get their degrees on Saturday, but many athletes are already taking the time to reflect on one of the most successful sports years in the school’s history. St. Thomas won a total of 10 MIAC titles, six in men’s sports and four in women’s to sweep the conference’s All Sports Competition.
Every football coach will tell you they are excited about a new class of incoming players, it’s up to everyone else to determine how legitimate that excitement is. Glenn Caruso was downright giddy when talking about his 2013 recruiting class that will arrive on the St. Thomas campus this fall.
There was nobody more frustrated by last week’s foot-plus of snow in southern Minnesota than the state’s spring prep athletes.
He was the heart and soul of the St. Thomas defense in a run to the NCAA Championship game last season. Now Ayo Idowu is at least getting a chance, even if temporary, to take his game to the next level.
Two weeks have passed since the college basketball season, and St. Thomas coach John Tauer is still kicking himself at how the year ended despite one of the most successful seasons in history of the program.
It’s the worst fear of any high school athlete who competes in a spring sport in Minnesota: the sight of rain or snow.
It’s one of the most unique times there’s ever been for boys high school basketball in Minnesota. The state has had plenty of Division I recruits before, and more emerge every year.
This week was spring break at the University of St. Thomas, and men’s basketball coach John Tauer said half-jokingly he’s miserable. It’s got nothing to do with school, but rather that he’s not preparing to play for a national championship.
When the clock hit zero in the Class 4A title game Saturday night, the emotion that spilled out onto the court said it all.
The St. Thomas men’s basketball team left Wednesday morning for the Elite Eight in Salem, Va., after narrowly beating Calvin College 63-62 in the NCAA Division III Sweet 16 last Saturday night.
It feels like March Madness just got started, but it’s wrapping up on the high school level this week with the State Boys Basketball Tournament.
Saturday night promises to be both exciting and bittersweet for the St. Thomas men’s basketball team. The Tommies (28-1), ranked No. 1 in Division III, host No. 12-ranked Calvin College (Michigan) in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament.
Unless you’re one of the few teams to end a season with a state championship, there’s nothing like the feeling of winning a section title and earning that coveted trip to state.
It looks to be an exciting week at the Target Center as the top girls basketball players and teams converge on downtown Minneapolis for the annual state tournament.
