12 DAYS TO 2018 KICKOFF: Landry Weber

In which BracketCat counts down the 12th day until the 2018 kickoff with a profile of wide receiver Landry Weber.

#12 Brian Kavanaugh
Like the entire Weber clan, Brian Kavanaugh (12) excelled on the strength of his intelligence and maximized his ... shall we say, less than fully athletic talents. Landry Weber, by all accounts, actually may be the most athletic of all of the Weber children, so I expect him to at least match the exploits of Stanton.

Landry Weber (b. Sept. 18, 1998) is a walk-on wide receiver who redshirted in 2017 and hails from a talented bloodline that includes his father, K-State radio analyst and former quarterback Stan Weber, and older brother, former special teams captain Stanton Weber.

Despite earning a scholarship to Washburn University, he chose to follow in his father’s and brother’s footsteps at K-State. (Read more about the K-State/Weber connection here.)

Landry Weber caught a 14-yard pass from Skylar Thompson and had three catches for 38 yards overall as a starter for the White team in the 2018 spring game. He did just as good when lining up in relief for the Purple team, with six catches for 27 yards.

Prior to coming to K-State, Weber played both wide receiver and defensive back for Bishop Miege High School, catching 57 passes for 1,160 yards and 20 touchdowns as a senior.

He had four touchdowns in Bishop Miege’s 64-21 win over Mill Valley and was honored as the Hy-Vee 41 Five-Star Athlete of the Week.

Weber had 237 receiving yards in that game, with touchdown receptions of 9, 25, 42, and 86 yards. It was the second straight game he tallied four touchdowns.

In addition to his outstanding game against Mill Valley, Weber racked up four touchdowns and 313 all-purpose yards against Blue Valley West. In all, he was part of three state football titles, a basketball title and a track title.

His father, Stan, was a quarterback for K-State from 1980 to 1984 and has served as the color commentator on the K-State Sports Network since 1987.

Older brother Stanton also was a wide receiver for the Wildcats from 2011 to 2015 and currently is an offensive graduate assistant. Like Stanton, Landry wears No. 12.

Their sister, McKenzie, is a sophomore on the K-State volleyball team.
