WSC's Randy Weich Named AFCA All-American

Posted: 10 December, 2012

WAYNE - Senior punter Randy Weich of Wayne State College has been named to the 2012 AFCA Division II Coaches’ All-America Team announced Monday morning by the American Football Coaches Association. Weich is the third Wildcat in the last five years to earn AFCA All-American honors, joining wide receiver Frederick Bruno in 2009 and defensive end Troy Pribnow in 2008 as recent AFCA All-Americans at Wayne State College.

                Weich, a 6-2 250 pound senior punter from Pierce, Nebraska, 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 last week was named to the 2012 BSN (Beyond Sports Network) Division II All-America Second Team.  Weich has also been selected to play in the All-American Bowl on December 22nd at the Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Last season as a junior, Weich was named Associated Press Little All-American First Team punter.
                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.
