4-Foot-9 Walk-On From Rice Draws Thunderous Cheers With 1-Yard Run in Team’s Romp
This is a modern-day ‘Rudy.’
Jayson Carter is a 4-foot-9, 135-pound walk-on with the Rice Owls who got his first career carry this past weekend in the team’s 45-7 victory over UTEP.
Carter walked on to the squad in 2011. Coach David Bailiff has been a big supporter of his, saying, “I think it’s great we’re helping him make one of his dreams to play college football come true.”
Carter ran for one yard, but he was pleased, noting, “I did what I was supposed to. I didn’t get negative yards.”
