Weston Richburg

Weston Blaine Richburg is a center for the New York Giants. He was drafted by the New York Giants in the second round, 43rd overall of the 2014 NFL Draft,  becoming the most recent Colorado State offensive lineman to be selected in an NFL Draft.  He played college football at Colorado state, where he was First-team All-MWC in 2013, Honorable Mention All-MWC in 2012, and Second-team All-MWC in 2011.  Richburg graduated with a bachelor’s degree in animal science. A native of Bushland, Texas, Richburg attended Bushland High School, where he was a two-sport star in football and track. He began his career as a quarterback, also playing linebacker during his freshman season, but a growth spurt prior to his sophomore campaign saw him convert to the line, playing on both sides of the ball. As a senior, the team captain helped lead the Falcons to a 10-0 regular season record en route to capturing the district title. He captured the state title in the shot put event at the 2009 UIL T&F Championships, with a PR throw of 18.34 meters (60 ft 1 in), setting a school record, that ranks as the fourth-best throw by a Texas prep athlete in any classification and worthy of the Texas Class 2A gold medal.  In the discus, he got a top-throw of 53.31 meters (172 ft 2 in) at the 2009 Texas Tech Regional Qualifiers, where he took bronze. He is the son of Danny and Ruth Richburg and has two relatives, Nathan and Aubrey, who played football at Texas Tech. Richburg has helped members of the Boys and Girls Club of Larimer County with homework and reading, and also participated in the club’s sports programs in March before the 2010 season. Weston has also made several appearances visiting with developmentally disabled kids at Respite Care of Fort Collins, in February 2010, February 2011 and July 2011 and for a month during the summer of 2010, he interacted with low-income Linton Elementary students at a local clubhouse, in conjunction with the Larimer County Food Bank, Fort Collins Recreation and Vineland Church.
