Carter said it’s an hour to join “the excellent program at Lowndes High School.”
“I intend to work hard and continue the winning traditions which have long defined Lowndes Football. I am committed to building a program founded on strong relationships and trust. I will implement a plan that has proven to work over the years and create a program that prides itself on hard work, dedication, and commitment.”
Superintendent Dr. Shawn Haralson said he is excited to have Carter on the coaching staff.
“I welcome Coach Carter, his wife Molly, and son Steele to our Viking family. Coach Carter brings a vast amount of football knowledge, experience, and a proven winning record. We look forward to many years of success on and off the field with Coach Carter leading the way for our boys and girls at Lowndes High School,” Haralson said.
Carter will be the fifth Lowndes head coach in the last 30 years and the 11th head coach in the 56-year history of the program.
