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 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 Husker players to earn academic All-Big Ten honors in 2014. He was also named a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar in 2015 and posted a perfect 4.0 GPA in the spring semester to earn his fourth straight spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll.

2014 (Redshirt Freshman)
Weber saw action in every game and finished the season with six tackles. He made four of his tackles on special teams, while also adding two tackles on defense at Fresno State.

2013 (Redshirt)
A walk-on, Weber redshirted in his first season in 2013.

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.
