Clemson Tigers linebacker Barrett Carter recently opened up about his experiences during his first season as a starter for the Clemson Tigers in 2022. While Carter acknowledges that not everything went as he had hoped, he still has a healthy view of the season.
"“We did a lot of great things this season. Eleven wins, ACC Champions, that is a great season. It definitely did not end the way we wanted it to, but we did a lot of great things this season. There is a lot to be proud of.”"
As noted by Will Vandervort of All Clemson Tigers, it’s reassuring to hear Carter views things as the glass half full and not half empty. He has a good head on his shoulders and will be counted on for leadership on the field for the Tigers this season.
