Curtis Carter’s personal stats of 1,038 all-purpose yards and 17 touchdowns as a junior, which included 262 yards and seven scores on the ground to go with 708 yards and 10 touchdowns through the air, were about what one would expect from a Wing-T offense that racked up more than 4,500 yards rushing.
The quarterback doesn’t get the opportunity to put up big numbers in the Wing-T but that may change when Stonewall (La.) North DeSoto goes to more of an option-oriented offense during his senior year.
That will also give college coaches the opportunity to see Carter’s athleticism which should allow him to make a smooth transition to cornerback at the next level. He has worked out at cornerback at several camps this spring and he’s shown the ability to turn his hips and accelerate. He also closes quickly on the ball and can mirror receivers downfield.
Here is more than five minutes of video of Carter in action during his junior season brought to you by TSD Television.
