A crew from the NFL Network spent the day in Bossier City Tuesday, preparing a piece about Bossier-Shreveport Battle Wings quarterback Quincy Carter. "We expect this to be a positive story about Quincy and the Battle Wings," said head coach Jon Norris. The story is scheduled to air during "NFL Total Access" this Friday. Airtime is 6:00pm CDT, with a rebroadcast planned for 9:00pm Central Time. As always, the piece is subject to rescheduling at the discretion of the network.
The presence of Carter, a former Dallas Cowboys quarterback now on the Battle Wings' roster, continues to bring a level of attention to the af2 club which has not been experienced in the past. During training camp, ESPN's "Outside the Lines" aired a story about Carter. Representatives from several Dallas-Ft. Worth publications have come to town to chronicle Carter's foray into Arena Football.
Through four games, Carter has completed 82 of 127 pass attempts for 1063 yards and 24 touchdowns. He has thrown three interceptions. In his first road game, Carter tied a franchise record by throwing seven touchdown passes against the Rio Grande Valley Dorados. That included a victory-clinching touchdown toss with just 2.9 seconds showing on the clock. "Quincy is having a lot of fun playing this game," Norris said. "He's like a kid with a video game. That being said, he's still learning. I only expect him to get better as the season progresses."
