Carrington on the road to recovery

Since his freshman year of high school, Pierce OL Ged Carrington (6-6, 285) has played all of the positions along the offensive line. In 2008, as a freshman the talented lineman moved to left tackle and held down that spot until he went down in week five with a torn ACL. Fast forward two months and he's ahead of schedule and already running and he's hoping to get some looks from D-1 programs...

"It was frustrating, but you can't change what happened," Carrington told "I tore my right ACL in the middle of game five and I was done. I had surgery two months ago and I'm already running so I feel like I'm ahead of schedule so we're working on getting my film out.

"We've already mailed it out to a bunch of schools letting them know I'm going to be fine and that I'm eligible to sign right now."

Carrington was a full qualifier after a solid prep career at Velencia High School, but he only received offers from some D-2 and NAIA schools so he decided to head to Pierce to further his career.

Currently he boasts a 315 pound bench press and a 410 pound squat to go along with a 5.01 forty time.

"Basically I was talking a lot with UCLA before my injury," Carrington lamented. "Oregon State and Kansas State are still talking to me, but I don't have any offers.

"I'm okay with waiting until after spring ball for schools to try and pick me up. If I have to play next year here at Pierce then that is fine, but I really would like to get out now so I can have four years to play three."
