Former Canadian Football League star Duron Carter has been hired by North Palm Beach Prep.

Carter will be the program’s director of player personnel and receivers coach. The school made the appointment of the 30-year-old official on Wednesday, May 12.

North Palm Beach Prep is located in Port Saint Lucie, FL. The school boasts itself as the premiere destination for student-athletes seeking to excel at greater heights post-high school graduation. The program develops and trains elite athletes to help reach their potential on the field as well as in the classroom.

Overall, Carter played 91 career CFL games, making 343 catches for 4,764 yards with 30 touchdowns. He was named a league all-star twice, once with the Montreal Alouettes and the other time in Saskatchewan Roughriders green and white.

Carter’s best CFL campaign came in 2017 with the Riders when he led the team with 1,043 receiving yards and nine touchdowns, including one on defence. He earned Saskatchewan’s Most Outstanding Player award while making plays as a receiver and defensive back.

Carter played in four NFL pre-season games in which he made nine grabs for 126 yards –14 yards per reception. All of those outings came with the Indianapolis Colts in 2015 and he spent that entire season on the practice roster.

Carter was an uber-talented player and looks to pass down his knowledge of the game to the next emerging stars at North Palm Beach Prep.
