William Cameron "Cam" Weaver (born June 10, 1983 in Kent, Washington) is an American soccer player who currently plays for Seattle Sounders FC in Major League Soccer.

Career[edit]

High school and college[edit]

Weaver attended Kentwood High School in Covington, Washington, and played four years of college soccer at Skagit Valley College and Seattle University.

Weaver also played for the Kalamazoo Kingdom in the USL Premier Development League.[1]

Professional[edit]

Weaver signed for the Seattle Sounders of the USL First Division in 2006. He became the league's co-leading scorer in his rookie season, a title he shared with Brazilian legend Romario of Miami FC. The scoring title earned him international recognition, and Weaver subsequently signed a three-year contract with Norwegian club Haugesund, for whom he subsequently scored 21 goals in 51 Adeccoligaen appearances.

In February 2009, Weaver joined Major League Soccer side San Jose Earthquakes. On 9 June 2009, the Earthquakes traded Weaver to Houston Dynamo in exchange for forward Chris Wondolowski and a conditional pick in the 2010 MLS draft.[2] He notched his first assist for the Dynamo in his first game with them on June 10, 2009 against Chivas USA. Three days later he scored for the first time with the Dynamo with a brace against FC Dallas to lead the team to a 3-1 win.
