  • Seminole tight end Carter to miss season

    Aug. 21, 2004 wire reports

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State tight end Donnie Carter will miss the upcoming season with a torn right knee ligament, coach Bobby Bowden said Saturday.

    Carter tore his anterior cruciate ligament in a scrimmage Wednesday. He will have surgery within the next two weeks.

    "You hate to lose him because he was making good progress and playing good football for us," Bowden said.

    The 6-foot-4 Carter played extensively last season, sharing time with starters Paul Irons and Matt Henshaw. He had five catches for 99 yards and a touchdown.

    A decision to move a player to back up Irons, Henshaw and junior walk-on Matt Root will be made next week, Bowden said.

    Henshaw, who injured his collarbone during Wednesday's scrimmage, has returned. Root is practicing with broken finger.

    Aggies WR Carter arrested after screaming, swearing at woman

    COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- One of Texas A&M's top receivers last season was charged with disorderly conduct over the weekend after he wouldn't stop screaming and swearing at a woman on a public sidewalk.

    Police said Jason Carter, 22, had to be separated several times from the woman on a sidewalk near some restaurants and bars, and that he was arrested after he continued screaming, swearing and making obscene gestures.

    Carter caught 34 passes for 458 yards last season. He also had seven rushes for 57 yards and three touchdowns during what was classified as his senior year. Carter would be eligible this fall if he graduates by the end of the summer because he was a partial qualifier in 2001.

    Texas A&M spokesman Alan Cannon told the Associated Press on Monday that the team would deal with any discipline of Carter internally.

    Backup QB saves Southern Miss in overtime win
    by DJRamFan
    Oct. 8, 2004 wire reports
    HATTIESBURG, Miss. -- Damion Carter came on in an emergency and saved Southern Mississippi's perfect start.

    Carter, the Golden Eagles' backup quarterback, threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Otho Graves in overtime, giving Southern Mississippi a 35-29 victory over Houston on Thursday night.

    It was just Carter's third pass of the season, and his only attempt of the game, but it helped Southern Miss win its fourth consecutive game to start the season, the first time the Golden Eagles have done that since 1981. Southern Miss has won 12 consecutive contests in Conference USA play since 2002.

    "Being the No. 2, you know you're always only one play away," Carter said. "I try to go out there with the same poise and confidence that Dustin goes out there with and be a team leader."

    Southern Miss (4-0, 3-0 C-USA), which blew a 14-point lead and trailed for most of the second half, forced overtime on starting quarterback Dustin Almond's 18-yard touchdown run with 1:22 remaining and Anthony Harris' game-tying 2-point conversion run.

    Almond pulled a hamstring in his left leg on the TD run, forcing Carter into the game.

    Carter "was really cool. I think he cherished the opportunity to go in there and make some plays," Southern Miss coach Jeff Bower said. "We wanted to run our offense and do the things that Damion does best."


    Southern Miss had the ball first in overtime and scored when Carter rolled right and hit Graves, who made a fingertip grab in the back of the end zone. Dustin McCaleb's extra-point was blocked.

    "I don't know how I managed to get one leg in, but I made a big play," Graves said.

    Houston then advanced to the Southern Miss 15 before faltering with two plays for negative yardage, a false-start penalty and two incompletions.

    "We should have had some momentum entering the overtime (because) we got the blocked extra point," said Kendal Briles, Houston's backup quarterback-turned-multipurpose threat and the son of coach Art Briles.

    Southern Miss fans stormed the field after Kevin Kolb's final pass sailed out of the end zone.

    Kolb was 19-of-36 for 345 yards and a touchdown for the Cougars (1-5, 1-2), who rallied from a 21-7 deficit and led 29-21 before Almond's touchdown run.

    "I thought we had it wrapped up, because our defense was playing well," Kendal Briles said.

    Vincent Marshall had four catches for 190 yards, turning several short slants into long gains for the Cougars, who haven't beaten Southern Miss since 1996.

    "To play that hard and then lose, it hurts," Marshall said.

    Kendal Briles caught 10 passes for 101 yards,...

    Receiver has speed but little experienc

    Rams Carter

    Oddly, the oldest participant at last week's rookie minicamp, Jeremy Carter, also arrived at Rams Park with the least football experience.
    Oddly, the oldest participant at last week's rookie minicamp also arrived at Rams Park with the least football experience.

    Wide receiver Jeremy Carter, 25, played only one season in college. And that was six years ago, at Western Carolina. Save for five games last summer with the semipro Triangle Rattlers of Durham, N.C., Carter had been out of the game since 1999.

    But he hadn't given up on it quite yet. "I have a passion for football; I love football," said Carter, who is not to be confused with Jerome Carter, a safety from Florida State who was a fourth-round draft pick by the Rams.

    Jeremy Carter's affection was overtaken for a time by his potential in track. A standout sprinter and hurdler at Leesville Road High in Raleigh, Carter transferred after his freshman year to East Carolina, which had a better track program. He'd planned to play football there, too.

    "I transferred ... with the arrangement, supposedly, that my coach would let me play football. It was understood," Carter said. "After a year, I was pretty successful on the track, and he decided he didn't want to take the risk of me getting hurt. So, he didn't let me play.

    "I can understand the decision; it was a business decision. But it kind of hurt me."

    Carter became an All-American at East Carolina, but once college was finished, so, too, was his career in athletics. Or so it seemed. But now, Carter is getting a chance to follow other sprinters such as "Bullet" Bob Hayes and Willie Gault and make a successful transition from track to NFL turf.

    That's partly because Rams scout Tom Marino has a deep memory. "Tom remembered him from when he played football at Western Carolina and kept track of him," Rams general manager Charley Armey explained. "(Marino) found out he was working in California and contacted him."

    Carter, who said he's "always stayed in shape," had been honing his pass-catching skills. Back home in Raleigh, he'd hook up "anyone I could get to throw to me. When I was in California, I had Aaron Rodgers throwing to me."

    The same Aaron Rodgers who was Green Bay's first-round pick in the draft - the second quarterback selected. "Not bad," Carter said, laughing.

    After working out for Marino, Carter signed April 21 to a one-year contract. To prepare for minicamp, Carter said he would "run, run, run, and catch. I caught at least a hundred balls a day."

    Five wideouts went through the three days of drills, including sixth-round draft choice Dante Ridgeway and Brandon Middleton, who...
