WSC's Randy Weich Honored Again
Posted: 15 December, 2012
WAYNE - Wayne State College senior punter Randy Weich has been selected to the 2012 Associated Press Little All-America Team announced Thursday, which is comprised of players from NCAA Division II and Division III and NAIA schools. The Pierce graduate was a Second Team selection after earning First Team Associated Press Little All-America honors last season.
It’s the fourth All-American honor for Weich this year, who was named AFCA All-American First Team punter Monday, Daktronics All-American Second Team Tuesday and BSN (Beyond Sports Network) Division II All-America Second Team last week.
Weich, a 6-2 250 pounder, was named NSIC South Division First Team Punter for a third straight season after leading the NSIC in punting for a third straight year averaging 44.8 yards per punt. Weich ranks third nationally in punt average and had 16 punts of 50 yards or more and 13 punts inside the 20 yard line. He owns virtually all punting records at WSC, including the top three single season averages and a school record 95 yard punt vs. Augustana in 2010. He was a Daktronics Super Region #3 First Team selection this season and has also been selected to play in the All-American Bowl on December 22nd at the Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He finished his Wildcat career with an average of 44.5 yards per punt over three seasons at Wayne State.
Wayne State finished the 2012 season with a 6-5 record. It was the sixth straight winning season for the Wildcats, the first time that has happened in the 97 year history of Wayne State football. WSC loses 16 seniors from this year’s team.
