- Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Fall 2013; Spring 2014)
Redshirt freshman linebacker Chris Weber has made a solid impact on and off the field during his first year in the Husker program. The 6-3, 220-pound Weber earned a spot in the 105-man fall practice roster a year ago, a rarity for an incoming freshman walk-on. This fall, the Elkhorn High School product will add depth in the linebacking corps and should compete for action on special teams. Weber carries a 3.964 cumulative grade-point average after his first two semesters of college.
Weber redshirted and worked on the scout team.
Before Nebraska (Elkhorn)
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 total 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.
Weber was born on Jan. 25, 1995, and is the son of Tom and Cindy Weber. He has not declared a mjaor, but earned a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll each of his first two semesters. Weber has volunteered his time with Uplifting Athletes, Husker Heroes, Husker Hotline and local rec center and hospital outreach events.
