When Cade Carpenter’s throw ins come into conversation, the word average is never used.
On top of being a key defender, Carpenter is instrumental in making simple throw ins play like a set pieces.
On Feb. 22, Carpenter signed a letter of intent to play soccer for coach Kevin Johns at Mississippi College who will utilize Cade’s unique skill.
Carpenter said he is looking forward to playing at MC. “It’s a great level of soccer,” Carpenter said. “MC is a great community, and I’m glad to be part of a team that is doing great things.”
Carpenter accounted for 1 goal and 7 assists his senior year, and frustrated defenses with his monstrous throw ins. As a defender, his presence was always needed and felt.
“Cade is a strong tackler,” Clinton boys head coach Tyler Wade said, “He is very good at organizing the back four and is just a great teammate to have around.”
Cade Carpenter served as team captain his senior year and was awarded Defensive MVP both his junior and senior years.
Cadeis a member of the Mississippi Brilla Team and is the son of Greg and Shelia Carpenter
