ELF: Vienna Vikings Sign All-Europe & Former Penn State WR Weston Carr

The European League of Football’s Vienna Vikings have announced the signing of former DI and the German Football League All-Star Weston Carr. Vienna signed Carr in 2022, however, a season-ending injury in the pre-season meant the talented pass catcher wouldn’t suit up in purple. Now the two parties have reunited to give the match a second try.

The 6’2″, 200-pound Benicia, California native’s stats speak for themselves as he led the German Football League with 1,318 receiving yards while playing for the Kiel Baltic Hurricanes in 2021. Carr’s size, leaping ability, and sure hands made him one of the league’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 catch 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.

Carr becomes the fourth and final American import in Vienna, as the Vikings have signed quarterback Chris Helbig, defensive end Jamarcus Henderson, and re-signed defensive back, running back, and returner Exavier Edwards. Carr joins a talented offense that features offensive lineman Matthew Daltry, Locus Holub, and Aleksander Milanovic, running back Karri Pajarinnen, and receiver Florian Bierbaumer.
