More Postseason Accolades For WSC's Randy Weich
Posted: 12 December, 2012
WAYNE - More postseason honors were announced Tuesday for Wayne State College senior punter Randy Weich as he was named to the 2012 Daktronics All-America Second Team.
The team is voted on by the NCAA Division II members of the College Sports Information Directors of America. It’s the third All-American honor for Weich, who was named yesterday AFCA All-American First Team punter and last week was named to the BSN (Beyond Sports Network) Division II All-America Second Team.
Weich, a 6-2 250 pounder 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 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. 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.
