Hoos on the Move

Congratulations to @UVAFootball alum Butch Jefferson who has been named Liberty’s new Associate Athletics Director for Student-Athlete Engagement and Development. A four-year scholarship player, Jefferson played on both the offensive and defensive lines for Virginia from 1998 to 2001 and was a letterwinner during his final season. He helped the Cavaliers make three-straight bowl game appearances from 1998 to 2000. Virginia finished the 1998 season with a 9-3 overall record and was ranked No. 18 in the final Associated Press poll. Jefferson returned to his alma mater in 2007 and spent six years as an Athletics Academic Coordinator with Virginia’s football program (2007-13). During the six-year span, Jefferson served on the Athletics Diversity Committee and Athletics Mentor Group, and he was an executive member of the University of Virginia General Faculty Council. Outside of his time working as a collegiate administrator at Virginia, Jefferson has worked in the private sector for more than a decade in a variety of roles and positions, most recently as a licensed real estate agent with Divine Fog Realty Company in Forest, Va.

Zoom-In

@UVAMensLax legend Steele Stanwick was @MattRileyPhoto’s guest on this week’s Zoom-in. Every Friday, an episode is posted to Instagram where a former student-athlete talks about some iconic shots from their playing days. However, the real gold is found in the extended interviews that Riley posts to his YouTube channel. Check out this extended chat with Stanwick above.
