Carter Stusek is a receiver turned lineman who is willing to put in the work to become a top notch player.

Football has been a huge part of Carter’s life since he was a young boy, whether it was watching football on television or playing catch in the backyard with his father, football was at the forefront.

Carter started playing football when he was 10 years old in the Regina Minor Football (RMF) system. He has since played for the RMF Gators, Raiders, and Golden Hawks. He won a city championship with the Gators in 2009 and the Raiders in 2012.

In 2013 Carter played for under-16 Team South Saskatchewan, making an all-star team at a tournament in Winnipeg.

In 2014 and 2015 Carter played for under-18 Team Saskatchewan at the Football Canada Cup, in 2014 as a receiver and 2015 as a lineman.

Carter showed his capability to be a team player when he made the decision to switch from receiver to lineman, citing team needs with the Tartans as the reason for the change.

The highlight of Carter’s last season of football was when the Tartans beat the Leboldus Golden Suns during the regular season, handing Leboldus their first lost in a while according to Carter.

Carter’s dad has been his biggest influence in his life and has been his coach throughout his football career, “he has taught me so much about football and life in general.”

His dad is not the only coach who has had an impact on Carter’s development both on and off the football field.  Ryan Hall, has been Carter’s coach for all of high school and on Team Saskatchewan.

“He taught me the value of being punctual, fighting through adversity and so many more life lessons.”

Carter has been enjoying the recruitment process so far, trying his best to take it all in.

“The recruitment process has been fun so far. A few teams have expressed interest in me and I’m excited to see what my future holds for me.”

Carter trains in the weight room a minimum of three days a week, following the program his coaches have made to help him get bigger and stronger.

“This season I plan to continue getting better as a player by learning, working hard in meetings, practice and workouts and keeping my body in top shape,” said Carter.
