Alex Weaver has been named The Daily Herald’s Tyrone Athlete of the Week for the week ending on Feb. 15.

Weaver placed third in the 170-pound weight class at the District 6 AA Tournament last weekend, punching his ticket to this weekend’s Southwest AA Regional Tournament.

“Alex had four wins this weekend with four pins. He came to wrestle and went out and did just that,” said Tyrone head coach Terry Tate. “I think that he is beginning to realize his potential and that can be a very dangerous thing this time of the year.”
