Recruit Video Interview: TE/LB Christian Weaver, Northlake Christian High School
by Jace LeJeune
We have finished our 23rd annual magazine cover shoot, but this year marked the third straight year in which we have conducted both a North and South photo shoot. This year, we shot the North photo shoot at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches and we shot the South photo shoot at Catholic High School in Baton Rouge. Both events were really successful, and we would like to thank everybody who has helped us make both events so special for the players that were involved. Besides taking the photos, Louisiana Football Magazine’s owner Lee Brecheen and editor Jace LeJeune got the chance to talk to some of the top Class of 2020 players in the state of the Louisiana. Both Brecheen and LeJeune talked to the recruits about their top schools, goals for the upcoming season, hobbies, and so much more. For the next couple of months, we will post these video interviews that were taken at both photoshoot events.
In today’s recruit interview, we go to Catholic High School where Jace LeJeune caught up with Northlake Christian High School senior TE/LB Christian Weaver before the start of the season!
Christian Weaver: In today’s age of football, the tight end position has changed to a basketball power forward on grass as athletic 6-4, 6-5 bodies are used to post smaller defensive backs for the right to the football like getting a rebound. One of those athletic basketball players from the 2020 class is Northlake Christian High School senior TE/LB Christian Weaver. At 6-3, 200 pounds and with a 6-6 frame, Weaver is quite the basketball player as he can play both small and power forward. Northlake Christian’s two sport player used those skills on the basketball court to help him on the gridiron last season. With the addition of new head coach James Willis, Weaver helped the adjustment period as being a senior leader for the Wolverines. As a result, the Wolverines bounced back posting a respectable 5-6 record. With leaders and athletes like Weaver, who came off an injury capped season only playing four games the season before, it shows what can happen when perseverance is overcome.
