Anthony Carter, a junior at Struthers High School, was pumped for the big game against Poland this Friday. 

Carter is the safety and running back on the varsity football team at Struthers High School. He started playing football at a really young age and came up on top as years went on. His biggest inspiration is his dad and he also looks up to many players on his team such as Brady Clyde, Nico Farina and Alec Grzyb. 

The team player has a lot of confidence and has many people behind him to bring him to victory along the way.

“They have pushed me to do my very best and helped me become the person I am today,” says Carter. 

Carter has been a part of many things revolving around football. He lettered his freshman year, which was a big accomplishment to him. He was also interviewed on WKBN and won the “Big 22” award. 

Winning these awards and being featured in many things really helped Carter push himself to do the best he can. 

“I am so grateful for all of the opportunities people have given me,” says Carter. 

Carter plans on going to college and hopefully playing football at Ohio State. He really makes sure that the younger generation knows that they have to work hard in order to get to the top. Being an inspiration to the younger kids is important to Carter because he wants the Struthers future generation to grow and to last. 

Supporting the younger kids, Carter hopes that Struthers will have a great football generation in the future. 

“Do your school work, get good grades and you will accomplish anything you put your mind to. I wish I cared about my grades as much as I do now,” says Carter.
