Over the past few years quarterback Messiah deWeaver has learned a lot about different offensive schemes having played at Trotwood (Ohio) Madison for three seasons before playing his senior season at Huber Heights (Ohio) Wayne. After two years at Michigan State, deWeaver transferred to East Mississippi Community College where he helped lead the program to a NJCAA national title.

While completing 68.0 percent of his passes (181-266) for 1,735 yards, 10 touchdowns and only four interceptions, deWeaver hopes to step in to a powerful offensive attack at Old Dominion where he’ll look to replace last years quarterback Blake LaRussa who left the program with a year of eligibility after passing for 3,015 yards and 19 touchdowns.  

Back in the Dayton area this week before heading back to Norfolk, Virginia… deWeaver stopped in at Trotwood-Madison high school where he visited with former high school coaches and more.

First Star Football Report spoke with deWeaver in this First Star Logistics sponsored video.
