When Carter High School was opened in 2004, the Lions were placed in the San Andreas League. After another year in the SAL, Carter was moved into the CBL, from where it qualified for the playoffs three times in four years. Now the Lions are back where they started, joining back up with their original league.
“We are looking forward to it,” Carter coach Alex Pierce said. “In looking around this league, the first thing you notice are the athletes. There are just so many athletic football players in this league that it’s going to be a fun challenge. It should be fun watching some of these games.”
Carter comes into the league after a positive second season under Pierce, improving from 2-8 in 2008 to 5-6 in 2009. With another year in his system, Pierce believes that Carter will continue to motor in the right direction.
