Johnson City, Tenn. -- East Tennessee State freshman Corey Carter (Greenwood, S.C.) earned Southern Conference Freshman-of-the-Week honors for his efforts in a 38-3 Southern Conference-opening win against VMI on September 16.

The 6-1 running back rambled for 107 yards on 18 carries (5.9 yards/attempt) to eclipse the 100-yard mark for the first time in his collegiate career. He also scored two touchdowns (one yard, 12 yards) -- both in the second quarter.
