Seattle University Athletics has announced the 2014 class for its Hall of Fame, and it includes former lower-leagues Sounder Cam Weaver.
Weaver, 30, is a Kent native who just completed the MLS season with the Houston Dynamo. His option was declined and he’ll be eligible in the Re-Entry Draft, which starts Thursday. You might remember in 2006 he was the co-leading scorer in the USL First Division (an honor he shared with Brazilian legend Romario), was named Rookie of the Year, and earned a deal with Norwegian club Haugesund.
Here is the bio from Seattle U:
Cam Weaver came to Seattle University from Skagit Valley College and helped the Seattle U men’s soccer team win the 2004 NCAA Division II National Championship. He collected eight goals and two assists for 18 total points, earning Newcomer of the Year honors from the Great Northwest Athletic Conference. He led the team in scoring in 2005 with nine goals and five assists for 23 total points, receiving First Team All-GNAC honors. Weaver just completed his fifth season with the Houston Dynamo in Major League Soccer (MLS).
The other members of the class will be Steve Conklin (baseball), Warren Farmer (tennis), Gary Ladd (basketball), Dale Lingenbrink (golf), Dr. Joe Shamseldin (physician), and the 1957 golf team.
The inductees were voted on this past fall by the SU Athletics Hall of Fame Committee. The ceremony will take place March 2 and the hall of famers will also be recognized at halftime of a basketball game March 1.
