The Tire Recycle Urban Athlete of the Week is Jeff Kim of the Kelvin Clippers football team.
This 5’10” linebacker was named the Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against St. Paul’s where he recorded 10 tackles and 2 quarterback sacks. The next week he followed that up with 12 tackles against Garden City. He leads the Virduk Division in tackles and is second in quarterback sacks. Coach Jon Romu states, “Jeff is a fantastic athlete with a great attitude. It is an asset to the team when one of the best players is also the hardest worker as it picks the whole team up. Jeff is a motivational leader that lets his play speak for him. Jeff has a motor that does not quit and is a natural player maker that can read and react with great quickness and agility”.
