Sundevils' man in the middle: center Carter Couch


Carter Couch

2-MINUTE DRILL

Coach: John Anderson. Overall record — 24-23 (5th year). Record at school — 24-23 (5th year).

Division: II.

League: Palomar.

Section titles: None.

Player to watch: Senior Lucas Johnson (1,456 yards, 13 TDs passing/648 yards, 12 TDs rushing) is a dual-threat QB who has committed to SDSU. His skill set is perfect out of the shotgun in Mt. Carmel’s quick passing game. Johnson can give defenses fits getting rid of the ball in an instant on the blitz, and he possesses escapability.

At a glance: Anderson said Mt. Carmel is “not real big, but real athletic.” Johnson has a pair of veteran WRs in Dane Hines and Kion Gould and a notable newcomer in WR T.J. Sullivan. RB Kevin Benavente returns in the backfield. Line play will be a question, especially early on, though a pair of all-leaguers — C Carter Couch and DL Kavika Muller — provide veteran presence. Junior Ashlin Morey’s accuracy earned her the starting place-kicker job.
