    Tale of a Tailback

    Freshman Carter pushing Brinkley, Chiara for start
    Tuesday, August 15, 2006By Donnie Webb
    Staff writer
    It took only a week of practice for freshman Delone Carter to charge into the heart of the starting tailback battle on the Syracuse University football team.
    Head coach Greg Robinson said Monday after practice that while he's not ready to name Carter or anyone else his starter, he said that his first-year player has put himself in position to play, and play now.
    "He's in the flow," Robinson said. "He's in the flow of things and he's battling for playing time."
    Carter joins sophomore Paul Chiara and Curtis "Boonah" Brinkley as the front-runners for the starting tailback job.
    Those three have edged themselves out of a pack that also includes sophomore Kareem Jones, junior Jeremy Sellers and freshman Derrell Smith.
    Jones was the primary backup last season to starter Damien Rhodes. He was apparently frustrated enough with the situation that he left the team and did not practice on Saturday and Sunday.
    Jones returned to practice Monday morning. He waved at a reporter as he left the field Monday afternoon.
    "He needed to go home, sit with his family. He did," Robinson said. "He's back and he's fine."
    Carter was named Mr. Football in Ohio last season after rushing for 2,788 yards and scoring 49 touchdowns as a senior at Copley High School. The 5-foot-10, 200-pound tailback has pushed the competition to another level, coaches say.
    "He's shown me a number of things I like," Robinson said of Carter. "He's got running skills. But I also like his toughness in blocking. He's got real intent to learn. He's mature."

    Offensive coordinator Brian White called Carter a "talented young man" and a "nice player.
    "We've just got to continue to work with him and see how far he can flatten the learning curve," White said. "He has ability. He has shown flashes. Now it comes down to how consistently he can perform and handle the stuff mentally. He has ability. He's a fun player to watch."
    Carter has exceptionally muscular thighs and calves. From the waist down, he looks like no other tailback on the roster. That plays to his favor.
    "He's got tremendous lower body balance," White said. "People ricochet off him."
    Lobdell improved
    Redshirt freshman Lavar Lobdell of Christian Brothers Academy may be establishing himself as the fourth wide receiver behind Rice Moss, Tim Lane and Taj Smith. Robinson calls the group competitive.
    "You do flow with five guys," Robinson said. "Lavar has come back and looks like the Lavar we were hoping to see. He's done a lot of good things. Jeremy (Horne) flashes. The young kids, all three of them, have done good things. It's early, but they're football players. And the team knows it."
    One is Mike Williams, of Buffalo. Williams was unable to enroll with the other freshmen in summer school but has impressed since his arrival.
    "He's got gifts," Robinson said. "He's a real good athlete, No. 1. He can run, he can jump and he's strong. He's got good hand-eye coordination. His greatest strength is he's very competitive."

    Carter lifts Syracuse to 3rd straight win

    Syracuse 40, Wyoming 34 -- Delone Carter, the 2005 Beacon Journal player of the year from Copley High School, scored his fourth touchdown of the game on a 15-yard run in the second overtime to lift Syracuse to a win over Wyoming (1-4) Saturday.
    Syracuse (3-2) has won three in a row for the first time since 2002.
    Carter had 129 yards on 20 carries and scored the first points of his college career.
    He scored on a 16-yard run up the middle in the first overtime and gave the Orange a 27-20 lead with a 13-yard run with 6:33 left in regulation.
    His other score came from 15 yards out in the third quarter.

    Ex-Copley High star turns heads in win

    Four-TD performance might get Delone Carter more tries at Syracuse

    By Marla Ridenour

    Beacon Journal sportswriter

    Delone Carter described being hoisted aloft by his Syracuse teammates Saturday after he scored four touchdowns in a double-overtime home victory over Wyoming as ``an out-of-body experience.''
    ``After that last touchdown, when everyone was carrying me, it was like I was standing outside my body watching somebody else get carried off the field,'' Carter said.
    But the moment seemed fitting after Ohio's Mr. Football last year at Copley High School carried the Orange to their third consecutive triumph, a feat Syracuse last accomplished in 2002.
    He ran for all 50 yards in the two extra periods, including touchdowns of 16 and 15 yards. He gained 129 yards on the ground, the most in a game by a freshman tailback since Damian Rhodes had 94 against Rhode Island in 2003. Carter became the sixth player in school history to rush for at least four touchdowns in a game, joining Jim Brown (1956), Floyd Little (1964, '65), David Walker (1991), Walter Reyes (2003) and Rhodes (2005). Brown holds the record with six touchdowns against Colgate in 1956.
    Carter's feats made the top 10 plays of the day on Saturday's ESPN wrapup. He was one of eight players honored this week by the Big East Conference, being named to its honor roll although he has yet to start a game. Sophomore Curtis Brinkley is still listed as No. 1 in the backfield as Syracuse (3-2) hosts Pitt (4-1) on Saturday.
    Asked if Carter's performance would mean more carries, Syracuse coach Greg Robinson said, ``It won't mean less.''
    ``His game was something I thought maybe was coming,'' Robinson said. ``All through training camp he flashed abilities you could see. He would take over at times. He really exploded (last week). His timing couldn't have been better.''
    Carter felt it coming, too.
    ``I saw how the linemen worked all week, how well we worked together,'' he said Tuesday. ``I was surprised, but not really.''
    Carter got his chance after Brinkley, who carried 11 times for 33 yards against Wyoming, lost his second fumble. After the game, Brinkley told the Associated Press, ``I was having a bad game from the beginning. I told Delone, `You need to step up for me.' ''
    ``Every time (Brinkley) would come off we would talk,'' Carter said. ``After the first fumble I said, `Put that out of your head,' then he had another one. When I went in he told me, `You can do it.' My linemen did an outstanding job. I have to make the most of the opportunities I have. I knew I had been working and studying hard and some day it would pay off and it did.''
    Such a day was common for Carter at Copley, but even he felt the magnitude of his performance.
    ``I used to do it back in high school, but this is a lot,'' he said. ``Wow, four touchdowns.''
    Carter said his mother, father and grandmother were at the game. Friends from the Akron area started text-messaging him before he left the field and the phone calls haven't stopped coming.
    Carter smiled as the Orange took him away, though he appeared a little uncomfortable.
    ``That was a team thing,'' Carter said of the victory. ``They didn't need to put me in the air.''
    Robinson didn't see it because he was shaking hands with the Wyoming coach. But he felt Carter deserved it.
    ``That's the type of feeling his teammates have about him,'' Robinson said. ``He's a very endearing personality. He's a giver.''
