Player Spotlight: Carter Todd

Interview With One of the Top Receivers in California

This past season Carter Todd of Merced established himself as one of the top receivers in northern California.  His athleticism and 6'3 frame allowed him to haul in seventy-one catches for 1,068 yards for the Bears.  With his brother Logan at QB and quick RB Garret Turner returning, Merced should make some noise and could improve on last year's 8-2 record.  Currently, Carter is receiving attention from Cal, Stanford, Northwestern, Miami and Ohio State.
