Stanton Jay Weber (b. May 7, 1993) is a former walk-on wide receiver who has played in each of the last 30 games dating back to the 2012 season. He projects as a special teams standout and a potential reserve wide receiver.

A valuable member of nearly every special teams unit who will battle for increased playing time on offense, the son of everyone's favorite color analyst and former K-State quarterback was voted a team captain for the 2015 season.

Weber saw time in eight games in 2012, mainly on special teams. He recorded a tackle on a kickoff against Texas.

Although he didn't catch any passes, Weber played several snaps in every game in 2013, mainly on special teams, and came away with four special teams tackles, including three in the final four regular-season games.

Weber also recovered a fumble on a kickoff against TCU as time expired and was an Academic All-Big 12 honoree.

He played in all 13 games last season, finishing the year tied for third on the team with eight special teams tackles.

Weber tied his career high with two stops against both Iowa State and Oklahoma State, hauled in his first-career pass — a 21-yard reception — against UTEP, and again earned first-team Academic All-Big 12 honors.

He lettered two years at Bishop Miege High School and was a two-time All-Eastern Kansas League player. He led the Stags to a 12-2 record and a Class 4A State championship as a junior, then a district championship as a senior.

Weber also was an honorable mention All-Eastern Kansas League performer at defensive back as a junior and senior, and he participated in the Kansas City Metro All-Star Game.

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 both basketball and baseball.
