Sophomore Chris Weber made his impact on the Husker special teams in his first season of action at Nebraska in 2014. Weber played in every game, working primarily on kickoff coverage, helping Nebraska field one of the Big Ten’s best units in that department. The walk-on also provided depth at linebacker and will look to push for more significant snaps on defense this season.
Weber was one of 21 Huskers to earn Academic All-Big Ten honors in 2014, and carries better than a 3.95 cumulative grade-point average.
2014 (Redshirt Freshman)
Weber saw action in every game and made six tackles. He made four of his tackles on special teams, while adding two tackles on defense at Fresno State.
A walk-on, Weber redshirted in his first season in 2013.
Before Nebraska (Elkhorn HS)
Weber was a defensive standout and contributed on offense for Coach Mark Wortman’s Elkhorn team, helping the Antlers to the Class B quarterfinals in 2012. Weber had 121 tackles, including 66 solo stops, and four quarterback sacks as a senior. On offense, he caught 18 passes for 338 yards and two touchdowns. Weber was a second-team All-Nebraska selection by the Omaha-World Herald and earned first-team Class B all-state honors from both the World-Herald and the Lincoln Journal Star.
Weber was also a member of Elkhorn’s 2011 Class B state title team. A recipient of a UNL Regents Scholarship, Weber had recruiting interest from North Dakota State and South Dakota State before choosing to walk on.
The son of Tom and Cindy Weber, Chris was born on Jan. 25, 1995. He is majoring in nutrition, exercise and health science and has made the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll each of his first four semesters. Weber has been named to the Brook Berringer and Tom Osborne Citizenship Teams the past two years for his extensive community outreach work. Weber has volunteered his time with Uplifting Athletes, Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital and numerous other outreach events.
