Augustana’s Eli Weber Earns Tryout at Minnesota Vikings Minicamp
Weber, who starred at Augustana here in Sioux Falls, recently wrapped up a rookie minicamp tryout with the Giants, and now has another chance to impress with the Vikings.
On ESPN Sioux Falls' Overtime with Bert Remien Tuesday afternoon Weber discussed how things went out in New York and New Jersey, and what's ahead in his playing career.
Here is the entirety of the interview that was heard live Tuesday on ESPN 102.3 AM 1000 KSOO:
Weber, who per Augustana's website is listed at 6'1 and 205 pounds, aims to make an impression on the Minnesota Vikings coaching staff similar to what Augustana alum CJ Ham did just a few short years ago.
Weber, a Dawson, Minnesota native, will attend Vikings rookie minicamp this weekend as a tryout, in hopes of landing a roster spot ahead of further offseason activities for the NFL franchise.
Over the course of his collegiate career in Sioux Falls, Weber played in 46 games, recorded 224 total tackles, and hauled in 12 interceptions. He was named a first-team all-NSIC performer three times during his career.
