Cal Football Video: The Wit & Wisdom of Evan Weaver, Part 1 -- All-America Love

Jeff Faraudo

Today we begin a series of video conversations with Cal linebacker Evan Weaver.

The senior from Spokane, Wash., is one of the stars of a Cal defense that hopes to be among the best in the country this season.

Weaver also is what sports writers refer to as a go-to guy -- he's a terrific interview.

He's smart, funny and he has something to say. If you remember him from last season, you know Evan Weaver is not the shy, retiring type. He enjoys speaking his mind and having some fun.

We sat down with him recently at Memorial Stadium to chat on a wide range of topic heading in the summer before Cal's Aug. 31 season opener against UC Davis.

Evan said he enjoyed the experience and we appreciate him taking the time to visit with us.

We're confident you will enjoy hearing what he has to say. As always.

Today, Weaver responds to earning spots on a couple preseason All-America teams. He was named a first-team selection by Athlon Sports and a second-team pick by Phil Steele.
