Five TDs get Carter noticed (Sprint Football)
Dwayne Carter of Anchorage went all Cam Newton in a recent Collegiate Sprint Football League game that earned him Player of the Week honors.
The starting freshman quarterback at Post University accounted for 5 touchdowns – three through the air and two on the ground – during a wild 57-43 loss to the United States Military Academy in West Point, N.Y.
Carter, of Dimond High fame, completed 36 of 60 passes for 389 yards and ran the ball 9 times for 34 yards.
Sprint football has the same rules as regular college football, but the weight limit for football players is 172 pounds. Execution is the focus in sprint football as opposed to the weight room.
Other schools to play sprint football include Cornell, Mansfield, Cornell, Navy, Princeton and Pennsylvania.
Carter has only started in three of seven games yet he is among the league leaders for passing yards with 1,006. He has thrown 10 touchdowns compared to 6 interceptions.
