HS FBall: Bowman County’s Jeffers stellar in the classroom, built own weights

National Sports

Bowman County football is one of the best teams in Class A this year, and plenty of their success starts up front on the offensive line.

Senior guard Beau Jeffers is a returning All-Region lineman for the Bulldogs, and his commitment to his team knows no limits, and it’s earned him plenty of respect from his coaching staff.

“Outstanding student. 4.0, top of his class,” head coach Todd Frie said. “Great leader, multiple pancake blocks last year. He just made huge holes for these running backs. You couldn’t ask for a harder-working kid.”

And it’s not just hard work in school. His family farm is 30 miles away from school, so in the offseason, Jeffers got creative to stay in shape.

“I pretty much welded my own squat rack and built all my own weight plates and everything, just out of farm equipment and stuff–tractor weights and stuff like that, so I could lift at home because I live so far out of town. So I just lift there. I haven’t had anything fall apart or break on me, so it works and gets the job done.”

The Bulldogs are off this week, but they’ll finish off the regular season on Oct. 12 at home against Beulah.
