Wellington’s Brody Weir – Poll Winner Presented By Advanced Physical Therapy

By Matt Browning

Wellington’s Brody Weir was one of the top two-way players in Class 4A last season, as he was a first team all-league tight end and defensive lineman. That has led Weir to thinking big in 2023.

“A personal goal for this season is to break my high single season sack record and have a good more receiving touchdowns this year,” Weir said. “As a team goal I want to help my team make it to the state championship game and win it.”

On offense, Weir racked up 152 receiving yards and three total touchdowns, while on defense, he recorded 49 tackles, 11.5 sacks, seven tackles for a loss, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

While it will be difficult for Weir to top his impressive 2022 season, he worked on specific fundamentals for this season.

“One thing I’m wanting to improve this year is my speed,” Weir said. “I have been doing explosive workouts and running hills to get my speed up and get my legs stronger. “

Wellington had a solid regular season before being upset by Winfield in the first round of the playoffs. Weir said he is excited to get back on the field with so many guys he has been playing with for many years.

“The thing I’m most excited about this season is I get to play with all the kids I played with in little league,” Weir said. “We all have a good connection and should do good things together.”
