Kent Meridian senior Quincy Carter locked the next four years of his life in Wednesday morning with a quick series of signatures on a Central Washington University letter of intent.

"Go wildcats," he said of signing with the Division II Wildcats to play football next fall.

The K-M quarterback will attend CWU in Ellensburg with a partial scholarship as a running back. He said that the signing left him relieved and excited.

"I worked hard all four years at school and it payed off," Carter added.

Carter visited the school on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend and enjoyed the experience. He also believes that the Wildcats new head coach, Ian Shoemaker, has a good plan for the team.

"They're not just a team," Carter said, "they're a brotherhood."

While he's looking forward to the whole college experience, particularly the chance to "grow as a person and as a man," he's not looking forward to the cold weather of the Ellensburg area.

"It gets pretty cold up there, like below zero."

Carter plans to major in psychology at school and hopes to go into sports psychology, ideally for an NFL team.

"I want to put the guys back together after they're hurt," he said.
