Elmira Southside grad Mike Weaver continues his successful ride at Wake Forest as the starting kicker on the football team.
Weaver was named Wake Forest’s special teams player of the week after perhaps his busiest day of work as a kicker. Mike helped the team to a 33-28 win over Indiana and did all three kicking duties-field goal, kickoff and punting-on the afternoon.
He was perfect on all extra points, connected on two field goals, kicked nine punts and had three touchbacks on seven kickoffs. Weaver also received the “Game Changer” hammer which is given out to player who changes the outcome of the game the most on Saturdays. Mike will then carry the hammer out to the field this Saturday at N.C. State.
18 Sports will continue to follow the progress of Weaver, the redshirt junior, all season long.
