A native of Kansas City, Mo., Jeffries was an all-Big Six guard on Don Faurot's team in 1941 that debuted the Split-T formation which revolutionized college football. That squad led the nation in rushing (307.7 yards per game), won the Big Six Conference championship and earned a berth in the Sugar Bowl. Jeffries, along with fellow line mate Darold Jenkins, led the blocking for backfield stars Bob Stueber and Harry Ice. All of those men now reside in the MU Hall of Fame. Jeffries played in the College All-Star Game in Chicago in 1942, and was named to the Chicago Tribune All-America team. Following his graduation in 1942, Jeffries played professional football for two years. The Tiger Club of Kansas City honored him in 1996 for his dedication to MU. He resides in Kansas City.
