Avon Old Farms is a very outstanding football power and they have had a lot of great football players that have come through their system. Although they have had many great football players come through their system, they have never had an athletic quarterback such as Weyman, who has had the complete package.
The amazing thing about Weyman was that he came to Old Farms, two years ago, as a superior athlete with great size, great strength, and great speed...second to none at his position...but who had never played football in his life. This story and this kid borders on the supernatural.
He now has been trained for 14 months by professionals in his home town of Charleston, South Carolina...and they certainly did their job. In his first game as a junior, he threw for 200-yards and two touchdowns...in the first half. Being way ahead, his team never threw in the second half.
The Avon Old Farms team was a predominately running team last year, so Weyman only averaged about 12 throws a game and most of his throws were on third and long and many of his touchdown passes were on third or fourth and long. He finished his first season at quarterback with 57 completions out of 104 attempts for 1,520 yards and 13 touchdowns. He had a pretty good completion percentage of 55% and many of his incompletions were dropped.
Although this kid does not have that much experience at quarterback, he is still a passing phenom and he will get even better. On film, he has great poise and is a tremendous leader on the field. He also has a super-strong arm with ability to throw every single pass pattern.
His favorite pattern is the fade pattern and he has prefected it to almost prefection. He likes the long fade routes as well as the short ones. His quick out pattern is also a thing of beauty. He played the entire season with a slight hanstring pull, but was still mobile enogh to excape tacklers when flushed out of the pocket.
Brodie Croyle and John Elway are the best two quarterbacks that I have ever seen, running to their left and throwing back to thir right. On at least two occasions, Weyman made these throws look effortless.
I remember another quarterback by the name of Roger Stauback who had an extremely high IQ. With a 3.5 GPA and a 134 IQ, there are not many quarterbacks on any level who can match him. He also can do six reps of 225 on the bench press, and that is also pretty unheard of from a quarterback.

Weyman is very durable and muscular, He played every minute, got hit hard on numerous occasions, got up and never missed a play or practice because of injury. He trains at a very high level with professional athlete, Travis Jervey of the Atlanta Falcons. He looks physically beyond his age of 18 years and he is very mature.
"Over the last 15 years, we have had many D1 players and nationally ranked D1 prospects," said Avon Coach Kevin Driscoll, "but none of them stand out as a complete package as Brett Weyman."
"Brett Weyman is a very impressive young man, not only because of his superior athletic ability, but because of his work ethic, demeanor, and maturity," said Dr. Bob Clark, who is his speed coach.
