2L Luis Weierbach Awarded 2023 Pat Tillman Foundation Scholarship

The Pat Tillman Foundation has announced its scholars for 2023, including College of Law student 2L Luis Weierbach.

Prior to enrolling at the College of Law, Weierbach attended West Point and was later commissioned as an active-duty infantry officer, became airborne qualified, led a light infantry platoon in Thailand and Korea, and served as a company executive officer and battalion logistics officer.

A New York State wrestling champion in high school, Weierbach seeks to bring his passion for his fellow soldiers and young athletes to his future career in law. He plans to continue his life of service as an advocate in the courtroom for soldiers and an ambassador of healthy outlets like wrestling to underserved youth, encouraging participation in non-profits such as “Beat the Streets” to prevent them from entering the justice system and staying on the right path.

“I believe that we are as strong as our weakest moment and the grit we summon to wrestle through it,” Weierbach states.

As a Pat Tillman Foundation University Partner for the last five years, Syracuse University proudly supports its Tillman Scholars. The Program unites and empowers remarkable military veterans and spouses as the next generation of public and private sector leaders committed to service beyond self.
