IMPERIAL — Through his years of throwing touchdown passes, Imperial High alumni Chris Carter hoped to one day develop the skill set to play in the National Football League just as his former teammate Royce Freeman has done.

While the 2014 Tiger graduate did indeed touch his dream by playing in an NFL stadium while playing in college, he discovered his goals had changed. His dreams of leading a pro team on the football field have to yielded to a desire to join an even greater team as an officer in the U.S. Army.
