Chase Carter of Edgewater and Braxton Woodson of Lake Brantley are not quite balanced by college recruits. However, for two playmakers it is fine.
They don’t care about college recruiters. They’re much more concerned about getting their teams up for a state title. The way they play right now is certainly not out of the question. Edgewater is in the 3A-Subway class, while Brantley is in the 4A-Subway class.
Carter led Edgewater to a 4-0 record before coming on Friday and while there are no flashy numbers the leadership is obvious. Sure, the Eagles have it all, backing Cedric Baxter to score most touchdowns, but Carter is the main mode that keeps spinning.
“Of course, being a quarterback is very important,” laughed Carter. “The team is using my energy, so playing right or wrong anyway, it all comes down to being good about it and having that winning spirit.”
Ensures players are positioned as they should be in every game, especially in the offensive line. The Eagles have so many new sets this season, Carter has to make everyone do the same.
“I’m just helping with handoff and helping people get in line,” Carter said. “It’s a big part of our offensive, and I was proud to see it as a major aspect of the offensive.”
He is also involved in football. Carter missed the interception in 50 tries and lunged for more yards than he had thrown. He is the second leader of the team and has only lost two fumbles in four games.
His confidence rose to another level. Maybe because it’s his team this year. Last season, he shared responsibilities with senior Tyler Wesley, a transfer from Tohopekaliga.
“I don’t feel like I’ve played my best this year,” said Carter. “But as a leader and my role in the team, I feel that the friendships I have built over these four years have culminated in this. So it comes as no surprise that the leadership is good and we all have a good team spirit. “
His trainer Cameron Duke played a key role in his development.
“Me and the Duke coach have really good conversations, both about football and just about real life,” said Carter. “It helps me on and off the pitch and also helps me in the team as a leader to be a good friend and good teammate.”
Carter, who has a 4.0 GPA (4.9 weighted), looks at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh or Davidson (NC) College. As his recruitment is progressing slowly, he decided to look at some of the academic institutions that showed interest.
Woodson, who was similarly recruited or recruited as quarterback, runaway, or retriever due to his speed and athletic ability, has verbally committed to playing in the Navy. He wants to play quarterback, his true love. However, a commitment to the Navy hangs in the balance if something else comes up. All commitments at this point are non-binding until the early signing period in December.
Woodson is also a true leader and will take over the game when he deems it necessary.
“I feel pretty good with it and the coach [Skip Clayton] he really helped me in this role, ”he said. “He pushed me into this role and helped me with things like leadership. … I feel like I got into the role quite well and it’s all to help my team and get us where we want ”.
This is Woodson’s second season as starter Brantley to take over the Patriots triple option. Brantley is 3-1 at the start and the loss came in the opening game when he squandered the 21-6 lead at the break at Oviedo and lost 26-21.
Woodson’s biggest game as leader Brantley was on Saturday against rival Lake Mary. At 21-14, he took his team on a 94-meter ride that looked unbelievable at the time. But Brantley had Woodson running over 60 yards in the winning ride to bring Brantley to 21-20 with just over three minutes left.
It was time to make a decision, but it was obvious. The Pats went for a two-point conversion and victory.
After two breaks, Woodson took the snap and moved the ball to the far right, giving Brantley a 22-21 advantage.
“I realized that if I didn’t, it wouldn’t be done,” Woodson said of the game’s victory. “I had to take the role … and just be that guy right now and help lead my team to victory.”
Being a beginner in the second year worked wonders for Woodson’s game.
“Oh, it helped me a lot. Last year, I don’t think I’m as confident as I could be, ‘he said. “I wasn’t so sure if I was playing the game, but this year, with the help of coach Skip, I was more confident playing my best.”
It’s easy to see why recruiters refer to Woodson as a quarterback or quarterback with a double threat. He said all the time that he wanted to play as quarterback, so he went to the Navy. It has been offered by all service academies and holds a 3.8 GPA.
“I don’t mind that they consider me a runner because that’s all they see on the file,” Woodson said of his team’s triple att*ck, “but when I have the chance and the opportunity, I feel like a quarterback and I can definitely throw the ball like this. good like anybody there.
He leads the Patriots on a run with 499 yards and 9 touchdowns in 51 leads. He only tossed the ball 33 times for 220 yards, but had no steals and only lost one fumble.
“Most schools recruit me as a double-threat quarterback,” he said, “and I only focus on playing quarterback.”
Together, the couple seem to have the short end of the recruiting stick, but things could turn around.
For now, it is “State Championship or Bust”. If they accomplish this feat, they will get a lot of attention.
