Bio

Position: Defensive Back

Previous College: None

Projection: Scout Team

Status: Walk-On

Weston Ross Hiebert (b. May 6, 1992) was a nobody. An unheralded walk-on. A faceless, nameless player who shuttles through the program, but hardly ever is noticed by the average K-State fan.

Then the 2012 spring game happened, and suddenly Hiebert was somebody.

With one errant decision to end the game by Collin Klein, Hiebert became "that guy who picked off our Heisman candidate to force a spring tie."

The play sent the White defensive unit, which had been picked apart mercilessly by Klein for the entire game, into conniptions. Could this have heralded the arrival of the next Marcus Watts or Ty Zimmerman?

Well, maybe not. We're deep enough at safety that I still anticipate Hiebert to remain a member of the scout team, and not much more. But it certainly represented the high-water mark to date of his short K-State career.

Hiebert was a four-year letterman at linebacker for Goessel High School, which won 10 different league, district and bi-district championships during his four years there.

He still holds the Bluebirds' career tackle record with 389 in a season, and he also forced 18 fumbles and intercepted nine passes. His highlights can be seen here. He also lettered in basketball and track.

Upon arriving at K-State in 2010, Hiebert converted to defensive back and redshirted. He did not play last season.
