Pat Weber

2015 WSHF inductee



A 1970 graduate of Riverdale High School, Pat Weber was a 10-time letterwinner for the Falcons and coached the Falcons baseball team for 29 years before retiring as coach after the 2005 season.


Weber was a member of Riverdale's undefeated 1968 football team as a halfback and cornerback and earned All-North Central Conference honors his junior and senior seasons. He lettered in football three times, scoring 11 touchdowns his senior year, and the Falcons went 22-8 in his three years on the team. He earned four letters in baseball and went on to pitch for Bluffton College for two years. Weber scored 693 points in his three-year varsity basketball career with the Falcons.


A biology teacher at RHS for 36 years, Weber won more than 400 games as baseball coach, leading the Falcons to three NCC championships, two district titles and a state semifinal appearance in 1980.


After two losing seasons to begin his tenure, Weber coached Riverdale to better than .500 records the next two years before the Falcons took flight and went 20-5, winning a share of the NCC title and reaching the state tournament semifinals in 1980. The Falcons beat Ottawa Hills, 11-7, and Parkway, 5-1, in regionals, but suffered a 5-0 loss to Anna in the state tournament.


Riverdale won league titles in 2001 and 2005 and captured a district championship in 2000. Four other times in his tenure, Riverdale was district runner-up. He had 11 players go on to play college baseball.


In addition to coaching baseball, Weber was varsity basketball coach for two years and also served as assistant varsity football coach, head junior high football coach, junior varsity basketball coach and eighth grade boys basketball coach.


Weber and his wife, Cheryl, have been married for more than 40 years and have two sons, Ty and Scott, and both played for their father in high school. Weber has five grandchildren.
