Things can’t get worse for Aaron Weaver.
The Baldwin High School product was lucky to escape the horrors of Hofstra dismantling its football program by signing on to play at Syracuse.
But last week the wide receiver tore the anterior cruciate ligament of his right knee during practice and is out for the season.
Weaver caught six passes for 88 yards in the first two games for the Orange this year, and caught the first touchdown of the season for Syracuse, a 23-yard catch from Ryan Nassib in a win over Akron.
A fifth-year senior, he played three years at Hofstra and recorded 1,416 receiving yards on 135 catches and grabbed eight touchdown passes. At Baldwin, he was part of a Nassau County title team and was named All-County and All-Long Island his senior year.
