    Scouting Report - April 23, 2002: (Scott Kennedy
    Landon Carter is a physical, run blocking tight end that will get the chance to show he can do more than knock people flat on their backs this season. "I had six catches last year playing in the wing-t," said Carter. "We're changing offenses this year though, so we'll probably open things up a little more."

    Any coach would be wise to get his 6'5 and 230 pound big man more involved in the vertical passing game, and that could be one of the reasons for the change. Another reason for the change may be the amount of experience returning for South Iredell this season. "We're returning 16 starters from last year's team. We went 5-7 last year, but our goal is to go to the playoffs this season. Personally, my goal is to make All-Conference and All-State."

    Carter will get more of a chance this season to show college what he can do, but he's already hearing from a multitude of schools. "Right now, I'd say North Carolina is my favorite. After them, I like NC State, Duke, Wake Forest, Virginia, and well, pretty much all of the ACC schools," Carter added with a laugh.

    While Carter only caught 6 balls last year, that may turn in to an average GAME for him this year. Look for Landon Carter to make waves this season on an experienced South Iredell team.
