He later went on to Hobart College playing Attackman and Midfielder going to 3 National Championship games and earning titles in 1991 and 1993. After college, Carter was the Assistant Coach at Bucknell University, whose team still holds the schools’ only undefeated record in 1996.

He also was US Lacrosse Gulf Coast Chapter Coach of the Year in 2014. Carter partnered with MadLax to launch the area’s most competitive travel lacrosse club in 2011. MadLax is consistently ranked nationally in the top 5 Lacrosse Programs and Carter hopes to continue partnering with their elite program offering Lee and Collier’s top players a chance to perform at the National Club Level. After a long career in sales and coaching, Carter has decided to follow his passion for Coaching Lacrosse after he was offered a job to be the Head Lacrosse Coach and Dean of Students by Canterbury. He hopes his partnership with Queener and 23 Lacrosse, the area’s other elite program, will only further spread his passion for the game.
