Covenant's Rick Weaver Named Falcon Club Player of the Week
Covenant school running back Rick Weaver is the Falcon Club Player of the Week. The freshman rushed 22 times for 308 yards and three touchdowns Friday in Covenant's 56-41 loss to North Cross.
Weaver has rushed for nine touchdowns and almost a thousand yards this season.
Covenant has a record of 4-5 this season and must its regular season finale at home Thursday against Randolph Macon to make the playoffs.
Weaver wishes his team could have won last week.
Weaver says, "I just played to my best ability. The line in front of me blocked the best they can. We tried to pull out the victory but you can't win them all."
Covenant coach Dave Hart says, "by far his best game of the year. Its been great to see him progress throughout the season. He and quarterback John Heumme are starting to get a good feel for our offense now."
Covenant kicks off at 4pm Thursday against Randolph Macon.
