Duron Carter: Son of a Legend, His Fall from Grace, and How He Is Making Amends

Much has been made of the path of Duron Carter.

First, we all knew him as the son of NFL legend, future Hall of Famer, and Minnesota Vikings great Cris Carter. Next, his legend began to grow due to what he was doing on the field – part of a St. Thomas Aquinas team that won back-to-back state championships in large part due to the 14 touchdown catches Duron reeled in as a senior – and he became a top high school recruit. Duron chose to follow his Dad’s footprints and go play for the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Next, as a freshman in 2009, he (read more…)

Comparing Brown & Ogletree

December 5, 2012

It’s up at Rotoworld. Different types of inside linebacker who both figure to be highly coveted come April.

Arthur Brown (younger brother of Eagles running back Bryce Brown) arrived at the University of Miami as one of the most heralded recruits in the country. He played outside linebacker for the Hurricanes’ scout team during his first year, but wasn’t comfortable there. In the last few weeks of the season, former Canes head coach Randy Shannon decided to move Brown from the outside to the middle, where it seemed the light clicked on – with Shannon noting the parallels of development between Brown and Shannon’s former pupil, Ray Lewis. However, a move to the middle wasn’t enough to help Brown crack Miami’s starting lineup at linebacker. After his sophomore season, he transferred to Kansas State (Brown is from Wichita, KS), and has since been one of (read more…)
