Carter is the backup to Lamar Raynard on the Celebration Bowl bound Aggie football team. The redshirt junior quarterback is from Austell, Georgia and has been a contributor for NCAT this season. He’s played in ten games in 2018 with 37 completions in 70 attempts and tossing four touchdowns.
His greatest moment as an Aggie thus far might have been his performance this year versus East Carolina. Carter came off the bench when Raynard was injured and led the Aggies to a come-from-behind win. He engineered two fourth-quarter touchdown drives to upset ECU 28-23 at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
We will update this story as more information becomes available.
