The West Virginia Roughriders have re-signed offensive lineman/tight end James Carter Sr. for the 2019 season, the team announced on Monday, January 14th, 2019.
James Carter Sr, a former graduate and player for NC Wesleyan and mainstay standout for the previous team who played in Richmond, the Richmond Raiders, was signed by the Richmond Roughriders in their 2017 inaugural season at the Richmond Coliseum. Carter was instantly a fan favorite since his first days with the Raiders, as the fans gave him the name "Big Game James", and that still rang true for the Roughriders as James Carter Sr. would become a tremendous help along the offensive line and a true asset to the Roughriders high scoring offense, paving the way for an undefeated inaugural championship season in 2017 and another championship appearance in 2018.
West Virginia Roughriders Owner/GM Gregg Fornario is very pleased to have Carter back with the Roughriders in their new home at the WesBanco Arena in Wheeling, West Virginia. "I think it's great and very fitting that Carter makes the trip with the team to West Virginia. He is one of the players that has been with us since the beginning and there is a reason for that. James is an incredibly versatile player, that I will definitely be excited to watch again in green and black this season."
