Carter nominated for Cliff Harris Award
By Kyle Jackson
Senior defensive back Robert Carter of the Lindsey Wilson football team has been selected as a nominee for the Cliff Harris Award, The Little Rock Touchdown Club and Wright Lindsey Jennings, LLP announced Saturday evening.
The award is presented to the nation's top small college defensive player representing more than 5,000 defensive players from almost 500 NCAA Division II, Division III, and NAIA colleges and universities.
A prestigious selection committee made up of former college and pro football greats will select the winner. In addition to the Cliff Harris Award overall winner, the top vote getter from each division will also be announced.
Carter earns the nomination after a stellar season which included a career-high eight interceptions for 68-yards, including three in a row in a 34-2 victory over No. 4-ranked Keiser (Fla.) setting a new single-game program record for the most interceptions from a single player. In addition to setting a program record, Carter's eight interceptions also ties for the most in the NAIA this season.
Carter also contributed 39 total tackles, 12 pass breakups, and a fumble recovery in 13 games for the Blue Raiders this season as he helped his side to a second consecutive NAIA FCS Semifinal appearance and 12-1 record.
His contributions this season earned him first-team Mid-South Conference honors, as well as first-team AFCA NAIA first-team All-American honors. The Lilburn, Georgia native also picked up Mid-South Conference and NAIA Player of the Week honors after his performance against Keiser in September.
Finalists for the award will be released in one week and the Cliff Harris Award winner will be announced on December 28, 2021, and honored at the Little Rock Touchdown Club's annual awards banquet on January 14, 2022. The winner will receive the $3,000 Cliff Harris Award trophy presented by Cliff Harris along with featured speaker Joe Theismann.
