Newnan senior Aundre Carter (No. 1) returned a blocked kick for a touchdown against Hardaway earlier in the season.

Newnan senior Aundre Carter made his college decision last week. The former Cougar defensive back, wide receiver and kick returner will take his talents to Bourbonnais, Illinois, to play for the Olivet Nazarene Fighting Tigers.

The Fighting Tigers compete in the Midwest Football League and are under the leadership of head coach Eric Hehman.

Last weekend, Olivet Nazarene defeated the Southwestern Assemblies of God Lions 21-16 to capture the 2022 National Christian College Athletic Association Victory Bowl.

The Fighting Tiger roster includes another local player, 2021 Trinity Christian graduate and running back Dominick Cosper.

Carter will join his brother, Aubrey, in the college football ranks. Aubrey just finished his sophomore season with the LaGrange College Panthers.
