Grambling's Martez Carter has four distinct ways he can impact the game, and all are on display lately
GRAMBLING, Louisiana -- Martez Carter picked a good time to turn it up in all the ways he can.
The explosive Grambling junior has been a dynamic force in the Tigers’ past three games. In fact, it’s not hard to envision different outcomes in the Bayou Classic and Southwestern Athletic Conference championship games had it not been for Carter’s all-around excellence.
In the three games leading up to this week's Celebration Bowl against North Carolina Central, Carter has tallied a whopping 913 all-purpose yards and six touchdowns.
“He has the ability to run the football,” Grambling coach Broderick Fobbs said.
That’s a bit of an undersell, though it was only truly evident in the past three games — his first three 100-yard efforts of the year.
It started with a 10-carry, 122-yard, two-touchdown performance in a comeback win against Texas Southern.
