Austin Weir wasn’t sure what his role would be for the Colfax Falcons this season.
He found out in a hurry, landing the starting quarterback job over the summer, winning his opener 35-18 over Argonaut with a three-touchdown effort and then holding steady as the Falcons lost three in a row before leading the Falcons over Wheatland 42-7 last Friday.
Weir, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound junior, passed for 187 yards and four touchdowns to earn The Bee’s Prep Football Player of the Week in voting on sacbee.com.
Weir is the latest in a line of fine Colfax passers under coach Tony Martello, in his 20th season. Said Martello: “Austin has great upside.”
