Formed in late 2020 in honor of WMSR Radio Sports Director and voice of Coffee County athletics Dennis Weaver, the Dream for Weave Foundation aims to help athletes in Coffee County.
Over the first three years of existence, the foundation has contributed over $40,000 in the form of athletic scholarships and assistance to athletes who needed help purchasing equipment or financing required camps and fees to play the sports they desire.
In 2022, in conjunction with Thunder Radio, the foundation hosted the first ever Thundies Sports Awards, recognizing over 30 athletes in the Coffee County Community for their excellence in athletics and giving out $13,000 in hard-earned scholarships to athletes on their way to college and/or technical school after graduating from Central High School. The 2023 Thundies grew to include over 40 athletes and $23,000 in scholarships.
The foundation is fueled by sponsorships and donations from individuals who care about athletics in our community.
Dennis Weaver was a longtime broadcaster for WMSR Thunder Radio and a longtime coach, helping to build the CHS Lady Raider softball program from a one-win team in the early 1990s to a state powerhouse.
His commitment to all athletes led to the expansion of Thunder Radio’s sports coverage to include broadcasts of high school soccer and volleyball, as well as middle school sports on the radio that included football, soccer, basketball, volleyball , baseball and softball. He launched the weekly Coffee Coaches Show that airs every Saturday at 10 a.m. (and has continued after his passing) that shines a spotlight on all athletes and coaches in the Coffee County Community. Dennis passed away in July of 2020 after complications from a routine surgery. He was 58 years old.
