The '81 season
in review

I

When A.C. gets the ball, look out,

Since Anthony Carter arrived on
the scene three short years ago,
Michigan football hasn 't been the
same. The senior flanker from
Riviera Beach, Fla. is often credited
with helping to teach head coach Bo
Schembechler the fundamental need
to throw the football. His 45-yard
touchdown reception as time ran
out in the 1979 Indiana game is con-
sidered by many to be the most ex-
citing play in Michigan football
history.
Carter and Georgia's Herschel
Walker are the only two players to
have finished in the top ten in the
Heisman Trophy balloting each of
the past two years. He has been
called many things, including the
most exciting player ever to play
college football, and we thought a
complete look at this athlete's im-
pressive career seemed appropriate
as Carter enters his final season at
Michigan.

Anthony Carter
(5-11, 161)
Has scored one touchdown for every
four catches he has made. . . his 16.7-
yard career average currently places
him ahead of the NCAA record pace set
by Nebraska's Johnny Rodgers, who
gained 13.8 yards every time he touched
the ball ... has caught at least one pass
in 20 consecutive games and 25 of his
last 26 contests ... finished third in the
nation on kickoff returns last year and
second in the nation his sophomore year
. scored on a 78-yard punt return
against Northwestern in his first
collegiate contest . . . in 1980 became
the first sophomore ever selected the
Michigan team MVP'. . . has the oppor-
tunity to become just the second player
in Michigan history to be named an All-
American three consecutive years
(Bennie Oosterbaan is the only other) . .
he has the opportunity to become just
the eighth player in Big Ten history to
be named an All-American three
straight years (Alex Agase was the last

to do it, in 1946) . . . has gained 10 or
more yards seven out of every 10 times
he has touched the ball in his collegiate
career.
What they're saying
about him
"People around the league have
compared me to Anthony Carter,
and I'm honored by that since An-
thony Carter is the greatest receiver
I've ever seen. And that includes the
Lynn Swanns."
--Duane Gunn, Indiana receiver
"I believe he's the most gifted
athlete I've ever had."
-Bo Schembechler
"Having witnessed throughout
the years, many great athletes, it is
difficult to recall anyone with the
ability to alter the course of a foot-
ball game as quickly as Anthony
Carter. "
C -Gil Brandt, Dallas Cowboys
chief scout
"It's good to have him out there.
A defense cannot afford to leave
him out there with just one man. He
puts the defense off balance."
-Lawrence Ricks, Michigan
running back
"Anthony Carter is, without
question, the most exciting player in,
college football. He is simply spec-
tacular. He has no peer in college
football at his position and he has
no peer as a big play specialist. He is
the most dynamic and explosive per-
former in college football."
-Bo, again
