Blake Weimer is a Junior at MPHS.

He has been playing football since 3rd grade.

“When I was little I thought the NFL players were my superheros,” he said.

Weimer plays running back and defensive back.

Last Friday’s game versus Jefferson he rushed for 197 yards on 10 carries and scored three touchdowns.

“After our loss the week before to Arvada something clicked,” said Weimer, and the team went on to beat Jefferson 51-12 on Oct. 14.

His pre-race ritual is to talk to his dad, say a prayer, and then go play.
