Jeff Comer

Jeff Comer is one of the best all-around athletes to ever come out of Thomas Johnson High School. From 1970 to 1972, Jeff was the team captain, leading his youth sports teams to several different championships, including Maryland State Little League championship, Frederick Midget Football League championship, and the Maryland State Babe Ruth championship. This carried into high school, where Jeff was part of the Maryland State Track and Field 440-yard relay state championship-winning team in the spring of 1974, was selected as an all-state athlete by the Maryland State Football League in the fall of that year and was a starting forward on the Thomas Johnson High School Basketball team that won the 1975 Maryland State Championship. That same year Jeff was a regional selection for the Maryland State Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Jeff continued his athletic career in the Atlantic Coast Conference at Duke University, where he was the starting split end and three-year letterman from 1976 to 1978. Jeff is still very involved today with Duke University’s prestigious Iron Dukes Athletic Booster Club.
