’25 WR/DB did enough in ’22 to whet our appetites
Carter Edwards has a solid frame, good length, has exhibited explosive separation, “over the top,” type verticality and speed. He made the most of his limited appearances in ’22 and looks to blow the top off the coming ’23 season. We wouldn’t bet against him.HB Lyon, Scouting Division, KPGFootball
In 1976, author, John T. Molloy, released a book entitled Dress for Success. The book encouraged the reader to strive to ascribe to a witty expression I have also seen attributed to Austin Kleon is his book, Steal Like an Artiest; 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative.
We mention this because it would appear, from most pictures of Carter Edwards we have found online, that Edwards is a subscriber to the same philosophy. The saying is, “…dress for the job you want, not the job you have…”
Judging by the featured photograph attached to this article, Chris Manning may need to be looking over his shoulder. Carter Edwards, his ’25 WR/DB prospect, is pictured dressing like he wants to run the whole kit and caboodle.
Edwards didn’t play in but four (4) of the team’s 11-games in ’22. Still, one has to admire the impact Edwards made in those four (4) games.
Edwards had 46-yards passing against North-Hopkins with a passing TD (that score is credited to the WR, not the QB), caught five (5) passes for 135-receiving yards, scoring two (2) TD’s receiving, scored 12-points on the year, and registered a tackle. We call that being perfectly ubiquitous.
When you consider Edwards’ measurables, his production makes more sense. Edwards is listed at 5’10,” 160-pounds which is good size for a sophomore slotted where Edwards played. NCSA (Next College Student Athlete) registered Edwards’ bench press at 180-pounds, though it may well be more now as we don’t know, for sure, the age of that entry.
We aren’t sure how fast Edwards is. We know Edwards is on the Track & Field team. We know Edwards sprints. We know Edwards sure looked fast racing 35-yards to the end zone to score a TD against Calloway County in The Storm’s 54-14 thrashing of the Lakers we witnessed and reported on October 10, 2022.
As for what kind of kid Edwards is, perhaps you should study on the above quote we lifted from his social media site. There is nothing wrong with wanting to take care of one’s momma. There is nothing wrong with being sufficiently self aware to realize how pivotal a college degree is to accomplishing that lofty goal.
We think this kid will really break-out this coming season. We also think Edwards will get the opportunity to get his college degree and to take care of his momma.
Who knows? He may not end up being the one paying for said college degree, either.
