The 31-year old former Nugget player and Assistant Coach takes over the program which has finished 2nd-Place the past two seasons in 'Area-4' League play, and has played for the Oregon State Championship twice since 2013.
Weiss succeeds longtime coach and Nuggets Hall of Famer Mike Reese, who recently retired from Legion services after 35 years in the program.
“I have been blessed to be able to coach under and alongside those I consider some of the best coaches in Oregon. I am a student of the game and plan on utilizing pieces from my previous coaches I’ve had the opportunity to study under as well as my own experiences.”
Weiss, a 2005 Crater HS graduate, has ties to Grants Pass since playing for the Nuggets himself in 2005, and becoming a coach.
He also coached under the leadership of Brian Diatte & Reese at North Valley HS in 2008, and at Grants Pass HS for 8-seasons (2009-16). Most recently Weiss assisted Jay Campbell helping lead Crater to the ‘OSAA Class 5A’ 2018 State Title.
The former Comet starred at Linn-Benton Community College playing in the NWAAC in 2006-07. Weiss will be assisted by Donny Treat, Bruce Sanford, Ty Fox, and former Nugget player Josh D'Amico.
