In the UW record books, Weil ranks fourth all-time in career punting average and owns two of the top-10 best punting seasons at UW (1980 and 1983). He also has the second and third best punting single games all-time (Sept. 17, 1983, vs. Air Force: six punts for 336 yards; and Nov. 1, 1980, vs. Colorado State: seven punts for 389 yards, respectively).
