DANIEL WEAVER
Kicker
2000-2003
N. Myrtle Beach, SC
Biography
The top kicker in the state in 1999, Weaver was named All-Region and named to the Shrine Bowl while playing kicker, free safety and backup quarterback for the Chiefs. He walked on to the Gamecocks in 2000 but an accident suffered in a four-wheeler fractured his hip and kept him out for much of his freshman year. He had a season to remember in 2001, starting with making the extra point that beat Alabama 37-36, then he made three field goals in a 16-14 win over Mississippi State and of course the biggest kick was his 42 yard field goal to beat Ohio State 31-28 as time expired in the Outback Bowl. Weaver was a member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll in 2002. He temporarily lost his kicking job in 2003 but bounced back to win it away from Josh Brown and Charlie Carpenter. Weaver ranks fourth all-time at USC in extra points made and sixth in career field goals.
