You might walk by sophomore Damon LaFever in the hallway and think nothing of it. However, his Youtube channel “Damon” formerly known as “Jeffy Gaming” has 160,000 subscribers and has accumulated well over 23 million views. To put that into perspective, if all of his subscribers lived together it would make up the second biggest city in Iowa.

Recently, Lefever received a silver play button for his channel surpassing 100,000 subscribers. “Back in September I watched the live subscriber count hit 100,000 with my friends. We were all amazed when I hit it. It was incredible to see such a huge number of fans grow and grow before my eyes,” said LaFever.

After years of creating content using the puppet character “Jeffy” LeFever recently decided it was time for a change.

“I changed the name of my channel because I wanted to continue my YouTube career as a new creator,” said LeFever. “This will provide the opportunity for my channel to make all kinds of videos besides gaming. I do plan on continuing my channel for as long as I can.”

It has been multiple weeks, however, since Damon has uploaded a video to his popular channel. “One of the reasons is because I need time to plan out my whole channel and I needed a break from making the Jeffy videos,” said LeFever.

In the future, Damon plans to keep things familiar to his fan base but add a different genre of content as well. “I’ve been thinking doing vlogging again but with better quality. Gaming videos that involve me playing them [instead of the Jeffy Character.]”
