Defensive tackle Michail Carter feels more than school pride with his selection to the Under Armour All-America Game.
“It means a lot to me, being that I’m the first player from my county to be selected to play in this game,” Carter said. “It’s a wonderful feeling and I’m truly blessed to play in the game.”
Carter, from Jackson (Ga.), received his honorary jersey Friday when the Selection Tour presented by American Family Insurance stopped at his school. The Under Armour All-America Game is Jan. 2 in Orlando.
Jackson is ranked as the No. 10 defensive tackle and the 44th player overall by ESPN.
Carter figures to stay in the Southeastern Conference for college and the 247 Sports Crystal Ball has him as at 100% to remain in state and play for the Bulldogs. He has gone to a number of games this season, including Alabama-Ole Miss and Georgia-Alabama.
As for where he lands, stay tuned.
