Career[edit]

Jeffrey was born in Dallas, Texas. After winning the Parade Boys Soccer National High School Player of the Year in 2008, Jeffrey signed with Club Brugge K.V. of Belgium.[1] However, after not being able to break into the first-team for Club Brugge, he signed with German Bundesliga side 1. FSV Mainz 05, where he spent the next four seasons playing with the reserve side.[1]

D.C. United[edit]

On July 3, 2013 it was announced that Jeffrey had been picked up by Major League Soccer side D.C. United in a waiver draft.[1] He debuted for D.C. United on July 27 against the New England Revolution in which he started and played 79 minutes as D.C. United lost the match 1–2.[2] On August 3, Jeffrey scored his first goal with his new club, netting a pass from Conor Doyle to give United a 3–1 lead against Montreal Impact. United would go on to win by the same scoreline.[3]

International[edit]

Jeffrey had represented the United States at the under-17, under-20, and the under-23 levels.[1] Jeffrey spent three semesters in the U-17 men’s national team residency program, where he led all players with 39 caps. Jeffrey played for the US U-17 men’s national team in 2007 U-17 FIFA World Cup, making four starts as the US reached the Round of 16. The midfielder tallied once with a late penalty against Tunisia in the group stages. He captained the under-17 side during the 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup and had played for the u20 side during the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup.[1]
