Weber Runs Away From the Competition

Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech 2015 RB Mike Weber scored three TD's in Cass' 39-7 win over rival Detroit (Mich.) King on Friday. Post-Game interview with highlights provided.

DETROIT – Mike Weber put Cass Tech on his back – literally.

The four-star running back -- who is committed to Michigan -- ran away from Detroit (Mich.) King defenders all night, scoring three touchdowns with 265 all-purpose yards in Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech’s 39-7 PSL championship win last Friday night at Ford field. The win gave Weber and his teammates their second consecutive city title.

“We knew if we came out hard and fast. It was something they were never used to,” Weber said. “Doing that and following the game plan – It feels good to be back-to-back city champs.”

Weber’s most impressive score came on 76-yard screen pass in the second quarter. He caught the ball on the Cass sideline, shook one King defender, and ran by the rest.

“I think they tried to key in on me, but the [offensive] line wouldn’t let it happen,” Weber said. “I give it all to them.”

Already with two state championships under his resume, Weber ranks Friday’s win versus King near the top.

“This is probably one of the best games we played as team, in my opinion, from all the four years I have been here,” Weber said. “Including the state championship. I feel like we all came together as a team. We blanked out all the doubters. We came here and played Cass Tech football. I give all the credit to the [offensive] line, the coaches, everybody.”

So with his city championship locked up: What’s the next goal for Weber? “The next goal for me is to lead my team to a state championship,” Weber said. “That’s the next goal.” Michigan

U-M coach Brady Hoke took in a Cass Tech football game earlier this month. The visit was very positive, according to Weber.

“Having Brady Hoke come see me was real cool,” Hoke said. “He got to see a lot of the things I do nice in person. [Though], he had to leave early when I actually started performing.”

With the Wolverines struggling, and Hoke’s tenure at Michigan in jeopardy, what was his message to Weber?

“He told me just to play hard and represent for my family, for Michigan, for myself and for teammates” Weber said. “That’s pretty much what he told me, then I went out there and performed.”

Weber, who has said previously he would be taking visit to other programs, says as of right now, he has no scheduled visits in the near future.

“Not really,” Weber said on planned upcoming visits. “Not right now. I have to sit down and check and see what is going on.”
