Carter Still Looking for First Offer

Quarterback McLane Carter helped Gilmer to a 35-25 comeback win over West Orange-Stark in the Texas Class 4A Division II state championship earlier this month. In his lone season as starting quarterback Carter passed for almost 4,000 yards and 47 touchdowns with just two interceptions. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound lefty is still waiting on his first offer, but is hearing from several schools.
