CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Rick Weaver will graduate from Covenant as the most decorated athlete in Eagles history, becoming the only person to ever win four-consecutive VISAA heavyweight wrestling titles.
Weaver announced his intention to join the Liberty wrestling team on Friday. The Flames do not have a varsity wrestling team, so Weaver will join a very successful club team. The Flames won the last two NCWA national championships.
"Today means a lot," Weaver said. "Its the start of a new chapter in my life, going off to college. Things don't always happen on your time. You have to keep moving forward. You can't go back. Wrestling, you only have six minutes, so you have to move forward in that time."
