A Lion Legacy

Cameren Carter                                                                                                                     

6-1 198 pound LB Cameren Carter has committed to the Lions. (Yes the spelling on his first name is correct). He hails from Duluth HS in Duluth, Georgia.

Carter was profiled as one of the "Best of the Best" in Georgia high school football at the end of last season. He was also considered one of the most underrated prospects in his county and described by local HS experts as a "perfect fit" for a 3-4 defense. 

Carter will be the second documented Duluth HS grad to come to Columbia football, following the excellent TE Hamilton Garner '14 who was an All Ivy player for the Lions.

But Carter's tightest connection to Columbia is through his dad, Hector Carter '91, who was a starting wide receiver for the Lions. Hector currently works as a police detective in New Jersey.

And yes, the fact that Hector graduated just a year before I did and now has a son old enough to play for the Lions is making me feel old!
