El Dorado (Kan.) Butler County C.C. three-star offensive guard Wade Weibert spent Sunday doing two things – beating Fort Scott and celebrating after the game with his friends and teammates.
But first things first, Weibert and his Butler County teammates won the NJCAA Region VI championship on Sunday beating Fort Scott 35-22.
The Grizzlies used a 28-pound second quarter outburst to put the game away early. Fort Scott rallied with 19 points in the second half, but by then the game was already over.

"It's a real honor to come away with the championship," Weibert, who is 6-foot-5 and 300 pounds, said.
"I wish we would have played better in the second half, but we did play well early on and it's now put us in position to play for the national championship."
Playing for the title isn't the only thing on his mind, though.
Weibert is also one of the Jayhawk Conference's most heavily recruited offensive linemen. He recently picked up an offer from Kansas State, but that offer has now been joined by another BCS level offer.
"My coach told me that N.C. State was offering," Weibert said. "I got a message from their coaches saying they were offering, but I've not talked to them directly yet. I got the K-State offer a few weeks back."
And both offers are definitely intriguing.
"I've always been a K-State fan, I've always gone to the games and been a fan of the program for sure," Weibert said.
"But N.C. State, it's in the ACC, so that's a school in need to check out and see what the future is like there. K-State is probably a little ahead of N.C. State, but I'm excited about taking a visit to N.C. State. I know they play in a tradition rich conference, and I definitely want to check them out."
Weibert said he's just now starting to set up visits with schools.
"It sounds like the K-State visit will be on Dec. 7," he said. "That's the weekend I've talked to K-State about. I'm not sure when I'll go to N.C. State at this point. I need to talk to them."
Weibert is also getting attention from Middle Tennessee State and Baylor.
