KANELAND—Based on the last two football seasons, the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater football program can be glad they’ve added a solid piece to its receiving core.

In February, Sean Carter, wideout and track weapon for Kaneland High School, committed to the Division III program.

Carter was a deep threat for a Kaneland squad for the last two undefeated seasons of KHS football—a team that has advanced to the Class 5A quarterfinals in consecutive years.

“Knowing all your accomplishments mean something and that you can continue to play after getting used to doing that for so many years,” Carter said on Tuesday. “It takes a lot of pressure off finally having that decision made.”

An all-conference player, Carter hopes to help a Warhawks squad that ran roughshod over the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference on its way to its fourth Division III championship in five years.

“Last year, we had a lot of big weapons. This year, Quinn (Buschbacher) and I were the seniors. It was a position we weren’t in the year before, and we were big targets,” Carter said. “Just being a big target gets you into a mindset.”

Carter was debating Wisconsin-Platteville, Minnesota State-Moorhead and St. Joseph’s (Ind.) before making his decision.

Teammate Buschbacher committed to the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
