Jackson Jeffcoat is returning to his old stomping ground this weekend.
The University of Texas’ Co-Op tweeted out that they’re “so pumped” to have the current Redskin and former Longhorn on campus this weekend.
In that tweet was the link to a video, shot during the 2013 season, where the cameras followed Jeffcoat around as he showed what it’s like to balance athletics and academics.
While the video is a little bit lengthy, it gives some insight into how difficult it is to have so much going on at such a young age.
Jeffcoat appeared in 40 games with 33 starts at the University of Texas.
As a freshman, he was named honorable mention Big 12 Defensive Freshman of the Year after posting 15 tackles, six tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks.
During a highly productive senior season, Jeffcoat earned All-American honors and became the first Longhorn to win the Ted Hendricks Award – given to college football’s top defense end – since current Redskins Pro Bowl linebacker Brian Orakpo. In total, he recorded 86 tackles, 13 sacks and 19 quarterback pressures.
