ELF: Vienna Vikings re-sign former DII All American WR Weston Carr

The European League of Football’s Vienna Vikings have announced the re-signing of former DII All American and German Football League All-Star Weston Carr. Vienna had signed Carr in 2022 but a season-ending injury in the pre-season meant the talented pass catcher wouldn’t suit up in purple.

Carr helped the Vikings reach the ELF semifinals catching 31 passes in nine games for 636 yards and five touchdowns.

Before joining the Vikings, the 6’2″, 200-pound Benicia, California native spent the 2021 season playing for the Kiel Baltic Hurricanes in the German Football League where he led the league with 1,318 receiving yards. Carr’s size, leaping ability, and sure hands made him one of the GFL’s top red-zone targets and he hauled in 15 touchdown passes. Carr’s 131 yards a game was good for the top of the GFL.

Following the 2021 season, he was named to the GFL’s All-Star and AFI’s All Europe Team. In a mid-season game against the eventual GFL champion Dresden Monarchs, Carr put up a monster game racking up 355 yards and six touchdowns on 18 catches.

Before arriving in northern Germany, Carr was an NCAA Division II star at Azusa Pacific University. As a member of the Cougars, Carr tallied 3,005 yards and 36 touchdowns on his way to three All-Conference seasons. His best year came his red-shirt sophomore season where he put up 1,458 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns on 86 catches earning All-American honors. In his redshirt junior year at Azusa, he played a large role in the Cougars GNAC conference championship catching 12 touchdowns, while alongside All-Europe receiver Darrell Adams. In 2019, Carr transferred to Penn State making a substantial leap from Division II to Division I’s Big Ten conference.
