Duron Carter and his St. Thomas Aquinas Raiders won their second straight Class 5A state title by thrashing Lakeland 56-7. Carter nabbed a 5-Yard touchdown pass in route to being named consensus national champions.
In his previous playoff game, Carter hauled in two touchdown grabs to help propel his team to the state championship.
Duron is the son of Ohio State and NFL icon Cris Carter, and their game strike a certain similarity. Duron is a tall, lean receiver with great hands, has knack for making the first man miss, and runs great routes. Couple that with his downfield blocking and willingness to go get the football, whether over the middle or a jump ball.
Speed isn't necessarily a big part of his game, and Duron most definitely has room to add weight to his frame, but he plays the game just like his father, making big plays when needed.
Duron will be participating in the 2009 Under Armour All-America Game on January 4,
