That year he was awarded SC Baseball Coach of the Year as well as The Heralds Area Coach of the Year three times. He joined the staff at Rock Hill High in 1979 where he coached football and track as well as teaching Drivers Education. He was chosen to be an Assistant Coach for the North-South game in 1999 after a winning several conference championships and two State Titles. He spoke of his coaching career saying "Some people go into coaching (football) with aspirations of one day being a Head Coach. Others go into coaching just to coach and work with young people. Im the latter. Ive never wanted the pressure of being a head coach -people always expecting to win-and working with young people is what I enjoy most in life." Weaver was an avid hunter and fisherman spending many hours enjoying these pastimes. And cooking his well known barbeque and catfish stew. "Coach" received excellent care from the staff at Carolina Gardens over the past several months. Thanks are offered to the "family" there. "Coach" is survived by several cousins, a host a good friends, as well as a legacy of students and athletes.
