He's a heck of goalie, and is only a sophomore. He's honorable mention All-American, which puts him in the top 10 goalies in the country. Goalie is a very difficult position in lacrosse. Few pads, 110mph shots. It takes a special person to stand in there.

Weber listed as one of "Five NCAA D1 Players You Need to Know Before 2016"

Detroit wasn’t very good last year, but that didn’t stop them from upsetting Ohio State in the first game of the season. Credit for that, and for a lot of low scoring games, goes to goalie Jason Weber. Against Ohio State, Weber posted a 63.6% save rate on 22 shots. This was a start to a season that saw Weber post 14.43 saves per game, leading the NCAA in that category. That wasn’t just because Detroit allowed a lot of shots, as Weber also finished third in the nation in save percentage at 59.1% on the year.

Weber’s junior year should see him continue to build on that great performance. While Detroit is probably too small a program to make the NCAA Tournament, I wouldn’t be shocked to see Detroit upset another major program this season, nor would I be shocked to see Weber make someone’s MLL roster in the future.

Its unfair to say "Detroit wasn't very good last year" when they had their first ever winning season, beat a top 20 team in Ohio State, beat other teams they had not previously beaten, and made the MAAC playoffs.

All we gotta do is win the MAAC, eh? It's not like there's not an obvious route to the Tournament, or like that route is insurmountable.
