TCU strong safety Sam Carter is one of those athletes coaches crave.
He’s a born leader, who demands his teammates’ respect not only for his prowess on the football field, but also for his demeanor off of it.
The former high school quarterback still commands any room, including a few weeks back when he and a group of Big 12 athletes visited Cook Children’s Medical Center.
Chucky Hunter, a sophomore defensive lineman, also visited the hospital. He watched Carter organize a group activity in the hospital’s lobby before they visited with patients.
“He’s one of the leaders on the team,” Hunter said. “It feels good to have him here with me because I know he leads by example and I’m trying to do the same thing.”
Carter leads a Horned Frogs secondary that returns all five starters.
