Louis "Rabbit" Weller (March 2, 1904 – April 1979) was an American football running back in the National Football League for the Boston Redskins. He attended Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kansas.
Weller was a four-sport star at Haskell Institute. Weller, a full-blooded Caddo Indian, was the first three-time captain of the Haskell football team, where he scored thirteen touchdowns of 60 yards or more. In 1930, he was selected to the Knute Rockne All-American team and the United Press second team. W eller played two years of professional football with the Boston Redskins and Tulsa Oilers, scoring a 60-yard touchdown the first time he touched the ball. A dodging, ducking runner, he had one of his greatest games in 1930 versus undefeated Oklahoma A&M. In that game, the 5-foot, 8-inch, 150-pounder returned a kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown and later returned a punt 95 yards for the winning touchdown in a 13-12 victory. Weller once returned seven punts for touchdowns in one high school game for Chilocco Indian Agricultural School in Oklahoma. Made Ripley's famous "Believe It or Not" for returning a kickoff 105 yards for a touchdown. Charter inductee of the American Indian Athletic Hall of Fame.
