  • 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

    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,...

    Oct. 18, 2004 wire reports

    PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State quarterback Josh Swogger broke a bone in his right foot, ending his sophomore season.

    The injury will require surgery, Washington State athletic department spokesman Rod Commons said Monday.

    Swogger's backup is freshman Alex Brink, who played in two games this season, completing 13-of-25 pass attempts for 278 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

    Freshman Gary Rogers, who hoped to redshirt this season, will be Brink's backup.

    Swogger already was playing with a partially torn ligament in his right knee and a sore ankle.

    He completed 91 of 193 pass attempts for 1,283 yards, with 13 touchdown passes and seven interceptions. He ranks seventh in the Pac-10 in passing, averaging 208.7 yards per game.
