Wade Carter, who died Friday, Oct. 9, is remembered as a great football player for the Warren Central Vikings.
Carter was a star linebacker for the Vikings in 2006, playing under WC’s former head coach Curtis Brewer. He was an outstanding player who helped lead the team to many victories in his high school days.
In 2007, Carter was selected to play in the Bernard Blackwell Classic by the Mississippi Association of Coaches because of his great senior season. He had finished the 2006 season with an impressive 113 tackles, leading the Viking’s defense.
Carter’s hard work on the field never went unnoticed, and he impressed many college scouts around Mississippi. A few months before graduation in 2007, Carter signed a football scholarship to play at Hinds Community College.
Carter died last week at the early age of 31 after being shot at LD’s Kitchen Oct. 6. A suspect, James Earl Winters, 29, remains at large.
Carter leaves behind plenty of family, friends and former teammates who will miss him dearly.
