He will go down as one of the great kickers in school history, and was on the ballot for the Top 100 Players in Demon Football History. Weeks could have his role expanded this season to include kickoffs, which he has done at times in the first three seasons, and punts, which he handled in high school. A bright and athletic personality, Weeks hosts a weekly sports talk radio show on campus station KNWD.
