LEAVITTSBURG, OH – When talking to the Labrae community and fans, the most common talking point is football. This passion and excitement surrounding the Vikings football team comes from a great program that is being built every week by Coach Armeni but also how the players believe in the team and themselves just as much as everyone else. This drive to succeed stems from great leadership on and off the field by many players within the LaBrae football family and one such leader is junior running back/defensive back, Devin Carter!
Devin has been on the varsity stage for three years but he has wasted no time showcasing his football talents as he is already LaBrae’s all time leading rusher! By proving his ability on the football field, Carter is able to lead by example but he is also an incredible teammate too. He is the first to give credit to everyone around him that helped him achieve his goals as an individual, such as his offensive linemen who create the holes and get great blocks to spring him free to pick up great yardage. Devin is also a great leader in the classroom and community, which is allowing him to create a buzz in the LaBrae area.
YSN’s own, Steve Leslie, had the opportunity to sit down with Devin this week via video chat to talk about his career so far as a Viking, what some of his goals are for this season as LaBrae is currently in the third round of the playoffs against Wickliffe, what his plans are for after high school, a rapid fire question session to learn some of the things that not many people know about himself, and much more!
