On Wednesday, February 6, fifteen senior boys from Regis Jesuit High School (RJ) signed letters of intent to play sports at the college level. Among this group of gifted athletes was Brody Weiss from Castle Rock, who signed on to play baseball for the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB).
“I was excited when I first found out that UCSB was interested because they were one of the first schools that contacted me and showed a lot of interest. It was cool to have them in the mix the whole time,” remarked Weiss. Weiss was also recruited by UCLA and Wake Forest, but felt that UCSB was the best fit.
Weiss began playing baseball at the age of five, and has excelled as a short-stop throughout his career. Weiss attributes much of his success to his experiences at RJ. “I have really enjoyed my high school career at Regis. It’s cool to look back and see how much Regis has helped me grow into who I am today. The thing I enjoyed the most was the sense of brotherhood there and how I felt like I was a part of the team even my first year as a freshman.”
Weiss is looking forward to playing baseball at the college level, but will miss his team and friends at RJ. “I have really enjoyed my time there and I’ll definitely miss the sense of community there as I head off to college. I think the one thing I will take with me from Regis to UCSB is just being a leader on and off the field.”
Brody Weiss is looking forward to playing baseball for the University of California in Santa Barbara. He signed his letter of intent on National Signing Day, along with high school seniors throughout the country.
