Cory Weissman

Honoray Shoreman of the Week

Cory Weissman, a senior on the Gettysburg College men's basketball team, is an Honorary Shoreman of the Week this week. Weissman made an inspirational comeback during the Bullets' win over the Shoremen Saturday.

Gettysburg named Cory its male Athlete of the Week this week:

Weissman returned to the court for the first time since suffering a stroke three years ago when he started on Senior Day against Washington College. After being introduced to a thunderous ovation, he left the game after the opening tap. Then with less than a minute to play, he returned to the game and made a free throw with 16 seconds left for his first collegiate point, bringing the crowd to its feet once again. - GettysburgSports.com
