Madison- Pittsburgh Panthers wide receiver Jester Weah doesn't lack confidence.

"I'm still the fastest on the team, so that's not new."

The former Madison Memorial standout is working out at home this week.  After redshirting his freshman year, Weah he says he's ready to contribute- right now.

"It was hard, not gonna lie.  At the same time you have to be there to support your teammates, because at the the end of the day everyone wants to win- especially me.
Get on the field and make a huge impact, and just do whatever it takes to make the team win."

Jester's working toward a degree in finance, but his dream is to play in the NFL.

"That's been the goal ever since I was a little kid." 

Weah heads back to Pittsburgh next week, but he likes spending time in his hometown and taking pride in his Wisconsin roots.

"I like to remember where I came from.  That's stuck with me ever since I grew up and matured."
