Former NJCAA First-Team All-American Colton Weisbrod has signed a professional contract to play basketball for AS Kaysersberg Ammerschwihr BCA. The French-based team competes in the NM1 league in the city of Kaysersberg, France.

The former Seahawks standout is currently listed as a starter on the team's website.

A native of Nederland, Weisbrod spent just one season with Lamar State College Port Arthur where he set school records and earned national honors on the court. During the 2015-16 campaign, he started all 32 of the Seahawks' games, averaging 21.4 points per game with 10.8 rebounds a game. His 685 points as well as per-game average are still the best in the college's history.

After leaving LSCPA, Weisbrod spent two seasons at Lamar University where he led the Southland Conference in points, rebounds, double-doubles and field goal percentage.
