Landry Jay 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.

Weber played in nine games in 2018, primarily on special teams. He recorded a tackle on kickoff coverage at Baylor, while he recovered a fumble on a kickoff against Kansas.

Weber also was a first-team Academic All-Big 12 honoree who was one of a Big 12-record four Wildcats to be nominated with a 4.0 grade-point average.

He 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 under coach Jon Holmes.

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

He 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.

He helped the Stags to earn consecutive 12-1 records as a junior and senior, both seasons resulting in state championships, and also played basketball, helping the Stags to earn two more state championships.

Weber picked up first-team all-state honors as a senior from The Topeka Capital-Journal and The Wichita Eagle, while he was an honorable mention pick by both newspapers as a junior.

He prepped with current Kansas State defensive back Cameron Key.

Weber’s famous 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 the special teams quality control coach. Like Stanton, Landry wears No. 12.

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