MINNEAPOLIS – Salisbury University senior Andre Carter was named a D3football.com preseason second-team All-American, the website announced this week.
Carter has been one of the top defensive backs in the Empire 8 Conference over the past two seasons, having been named first-team all-conference each of the past two seasons. In 2012, he led the league with 18 passes broken up to go with 42 tackles and two fumble recoveries.
The Huntingtown, Md., native was selected for the D3football.com Team of the Week twice in 2012 and was also named to the D3football.com All-East Region First Team at the end of the season.
Carter helped Salisbury to its third consecutive NCAA tournament appearance in 2012 as the Gulls have posted a 27-8 record in the past three seasons.
