Josh Carter: Football

Josh Carter
Josh Carter has been selected as the Springfield College Male Maroon Club Athlete of the Week after leading the football team to an impressive 42-13 win over Plymouth State in the ECAC Northeast Championship Bowl on Saturday.

Carter, a native of Marlborough, Mass., finished the game with 67 yards rushing and one touchdown on nine carries, as he averaged just over seven yards per carry. The sophomore also passed for a career-high 179 yards and two touchdowns, including a schoolrecord 88-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter.

Carter’s biggest play of the game may have been a tackle he made that saved a touchdown in the first quarter. Plymouth State had picked up a Springfield fumble and was in the process of returning it for a touchdown, when Carter fought his way through two blockers and tackled the Plymouth State player at the SC 10-yard line. Three plays later, on a third-and-goal from the 10, Springfield intercepted a pass and ran it back 100 yards for a touchdown.

For his performance, Carter was selected as the game’s Most Outstanding Player. Earlier in the week, Carter was honored as the Empire 8 Sportsman of the Year.

With the win, Springfield ended its season with an 8-2 record.
