He’s been named All-Pac-12 first-team and the Pac-12 Pat Tillman Defensive Player of the Year, but that’s not enough for California Golden Bears linebacker Evan Weaver—let’s look at things on a larger scale.
Weaver has been named a first-team All-American by CBS Sports and The Athletic (the latter according to @toddmal... I don’t have a subscription). Weaver is the first California player to earn All-American honors in over a decade—since Alex Mack in 2008.
If you aren’t familiar with Weaver, then I feel bad for you. He’s currently leading the nation in tackles (173, en route to breaking the Pac-12 single-season record and making a run for the NCAA single-season record) and tackles per game and was a finalist for three top awards: the Butkus Award, the Lott IMPACT Trophy and the Senior CLASS Award.
Congrats to Evan!
