Puyallup hires Jeffers as football coach

Gary Jeffers is the new head football coach at Puyallup.

Jeffers was head coach at Washington High School in Parkland from 1996-2003 and has been an assistant at Puyallup the past two seasons, serving as defensive coordinator. He succeeds Hall of Fame coach Tom Ingles, who resigned last month.

Jeffers currently teaches in the Puyallup School District’s “Advance Program,” a community-based transitional program for 18- to 21-year-old students with special needs.

Jeffers had this to say in a prepared press release sent out by the school district:

“In the pride and tradition of Puyallup football we will strive to develop student athletes who are ‘Champions’ in every aspect of their lives. Our team goals are to achieve academic and personal excellence, build a family environment, have fun, and have a positive impact on our school and community. As we pursue these goals, we are guided by our team core values which are: ‘We are caring, We are trustworthy, We are prepared, We will put forth our best effort.'”

Puyallup principal Jason Smith said, “I’m very excited about Gary Jeffers as our head coach. He is a teacher of the game, and he will bring a great deal of passion and enthusiasm to our program. We’re very happy to have him on board.”
