DC’s Carter signs with Jackson State

DeSOTO, Texas -- On the heels of National Signing Day for high school football players Wednesday, DeSoto Central senior Jalah Carter chose the following day, Thursday, to commit to play at the next level in another type of football, which we know as soccer.

Carter, a forward on the Lady Jags’ girls soccer team, signed a letter of intent to play at Jackson State University. Coach Amber Denfip said she was the first girls’ soccer player from DeSoto County to sign with a Division I school this season.

However, it’s believed Carter may also be the first girls’ soccer player from the county ever to move into the Division I ranks.

Carter provided an offensive punch for a Lady Jag team that finished 15-4 and 6-0 in MHSAA 6A-1 play this winter. She led the Lady Jags with 20 goals scored and she assisted on five others for a team that reached the first round of the playoffs before falling in penalty kicks to Northwest Rankin in Southaven.
