Maj. Ross Weaver is in his fourth year at the Air Force Academy where he serves as the assistant offensive line coach.
The offensive line has long been a strength of the offense at the Academy. In 2015, the offensive line featured first-team all-conference performer Sevrin Remmo. Weaver also helped mentor all-conference performer and Rimington Trophy Watch List honoree Michael Husar, who started the year at center and proved the versatility of the unit by moving to guard during the season to help strengthen the team.
Air Force ranked third nationally in rushing last season with a 317.4 per-game average. The Falcons have ranked among the nation’s top 10 every year Weaver has been at the Academy.
Weaver is a 2006 graduate of the Academy where he lettered in football four years. A dominant offensive lineman, he helped the Falcons lead the conference in rushing all four years while ranking in the top 10 nationally each season. Air Force was in the top five nationally three of those years, including ranking third in 2006 with a 229.4 rushing yards per-game average.
Following graduation, Weaver was assigned to F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming, where he served as a missile combat crew commander and assistant flight commander from 2007-11, responsible for day-to-day prompt global strike operations. He was then assigned to Las Angeles Air Force Base, Calif., from 2011-14, where he served as the flight operations program manager for the advanced extremely high frequency satellite program office, the wide field of view satellite program manager and the business development manager for the hosted payload program office.
Weaver remained active in football after completing his collegiate career, playing two seasons with the Colorado Ice of the Indoor Football League followed by one season with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.
A native of Parker, Colo., Weaver and his wife, Sarah, have two sons, Logan and Wyatt.
