Cam Weaver retires

New, 5 comments

The Kent-Covington native ends a career that spanned two continents and four professional teams.

Cam Weaver's pro career started in 2006 with the Seattle Sounders of the USL. He lead the league in goals scored that year and moved onwards and upwards. Now, after a nine-season career the Kentwood High and Seattle University product is retiring.

As some of you know, I've decided to call it a day on my soccer career. It's been a great ride and I've met some amazing people along the way. The experiences that my wife @estrellaweaver and I were blessed with will be cherished forever. 9 professional seasons from Seattle-Norway-San Jose-Houston-Seattle. I was fortunate to start and end my career in my hometown of Seattle (via Kent). I love this area and am excited to raise my little boy Bastian the same way I was raised. I have to say thanks to all my former teammates, coaches, and staff who have helped me along the way. My family has always been behind me and the sometimes hard decisions and sacrifices professional athletes make. I will be forever in debt. And to any fans out there who cheered for our team, I salute you. Starting today I will be a fan myself. Go @soundersfc #seattlelove #nwlife

Weaver's career took stops in Haggeland, San Jose and Houston. His career is the embodiment of Once and Always a Sounder. He is also the second "Twice a Sounder" to retire this year, as Marcus Hahnemann also hung up his boots after time with the lower division and MLS versions of Seattle's greatest soccer club.

Since Weaver's option was declined during the offseason the move opens up no cap, nor roster space.
