Thomas Dale’s Bryce Carter (2021 DE 6-3 245) landed offers from Virginia Tech, UVA, and Duke after his freshman season for the Knights. At the conclusion of his sophomore season, the talented defensive-end secured his forth and fifth ACC offers from Wake Forest and Pitt. Despite having five power five scholarships, Carter has continued to work on his craft and is attracting the attention of more Division I schools. “Lately I’ve been talking to West Virginia, Michigan State, Ohio, Tennessee, and Notre Dame,” stated Carter.
Carter and the Knights finished the 2018 season 9-3, advancing to the Regional Semi-Finals, where they fell to eventual state champions Manchester. Bryce notched 100 total tackles (60 solo), four sacks, and three pass deflections. He was named to the 1st team All-Region 6B as a defensive lineman.
In addition to Carter, Thomas Dale returns a slew of talent next fall, including one of the nation’s premier running backs, Chris Tyree.
“We’ve been working out with Coach Trace, our trainer. Been putting on a lot of pounds. I have ended up putting on twenty pounds this off-season… Everybody is saying this is a ring season we are getting ready for. As a team we have everybody coming back. We only had two seniors starting last year on both sides, so everybody who played last year will be coming back,” stated Carter.
