THE WOODLANDS, Texas — For the first half of the 2012 season, The Woodlands (Texas) High School coach Mark Schmid and his staff were cautious with running back Patrick Carr.
Considering that he was just a sophomore who was in his first varsity season, they wanted to ease the 5-foot-8, 175-pound running back into life as the bell cow for a Texas Class 5A program. Ideally, they would have groomed Carr with a senior starter in front of him, but that plan went out the window when their senior his ACL in spring football and would have to miss the year.
