“IMPACT The Jeff Florkey Story” is a documentary film about Jeff Florkey’s involvement with the Eisenhower Football team. Whenever I see Jeff at Meijer he reminds me about the upcoming football game or his current homecoming winning streak. It got me thinking that his story is a story that needs to be told, to be documented.
We interviewed coaches and players involved with his tenure with Varsity Football to gain other perspectives of his influence with the program. When I interviewed Jeff, one of the things he spoke about was being “the motivator.” I asked him to share one of his speeches but he said whatever is said in the locker room stays in the locker room. He also said that all his dreams came true working alongside the football players. This story spans fifteen years and Jeff has touched so many lives during that time.
