#12 Stanton Weber
Position: Wide Receiver
Previous College: None
Projection: Scout Team
Stanton Jay Weber (b. May 7, 1993) is a walk-on wide receiver with a high motor who played exclusively on special teams as a redshirt freshman and will push for playing time in 2013.
The son of our very own Stan Weber, everyone's favorite color analyst and former K-State quarterback, saw time in eight games in 2012, mainly on special teams. He recorded a tackle on kickoff coverage against Texas.
On a team that features Bill Snyder's grandson, Joe Gordon's son, Kevin Lockett's son, Junior Seau's nephew, having Stan Weber's kid on the roster seems perfectly in keeping with the "K-State family" theme of 2013.
Stan Jr. lettered two years at Bishop Miege and was a two-time honorable mention Eastern Kansas League player.
He had 142 tackles in his career as a defensive back and outside linebacker, including 89 as a senior, plus eight tipped passes and four picks. He also lettered in basketball and baseball.
Weber walked on, redshirted to learn a new position and seems destined for the scout team, although he was targeted a few times in the spring game. He only caught one pass for 17 yards, though. Watch his highlights here.
