J.C. Weldon played wide receiver at West Virginia University during the 2019 and 2020 football seasons.  After transferring to Morgantown from Marshall University, Weldon put up spectacular numbers in his time on campus and earned a place on the All-American team during the 2020 season.  In addition to being named an All-American, Weldon was named the winner of the Fred Biletnikoff trophy as the nation's best wide receiver and the Paul Warfield award.  A multi-time all Big-XII performer, Weldon would pair with fellow Hall of Fame member Mohammed Foster to lead one of the most prolific offenses in CFBHC history.  

 

During the 2019 season, Weldon would pace the Mountaineers with 89 receptions for 1,293 yards and 11 touchdowns and 0 drops as the Mountaineers would preview what the offense would become.  The play of Weldon would earn him a spot on the all Big-XII team and propel the team to upset victories over #7 Baylor and #20 Virginia in the Orlando bowl.  Weldon would also be a named a finalist to become for the All-American team and Biletnikoff award.  

 

Weldon's 2020 season lives on as one of the more memorable season's for a wide receiver in CFBHC history.  J.C. would shred defenses to the tune of 109 receptions, 1,776 yards, 17 touchdowns for a remarkable 16.29 Yards per reception and again would have 0 drops on the year.  The play of Weldon was a major factor in the Mountaineers ability to finish the season at 10-2, earn a 49-3 victory in the Big-XII conference championship game, and get the school's first appearance in the CFBHC playoffs.  J.C. Weldon would earn All-American honors for his play on the field and was also named the Biletnikoff and Warfield award winners.  His play over the 2019 and 2020 season would lead to being selected #4 overall in the NFLHC draft by the Miami Dolphins after his decision to declare early for the draft. 

 

Weldon would finish his WVU career with 198 receptions for 3,069 yards and 28 touchdowns in only 2 seasons of work with the Mountaineers.  He is considered by many to be one of the greatest receivers in CFBHC history.

 

A native of St. Albans, West Virginia, Weldon would attend St. Albans High School and lead the Red Devils to a state championship his junior and senior year.  Weldon would finish up his coursework during the summer of 2022 and earn his degree from West Virginia University.
