    Carter's latest move takes him to MSJ
    By Tom Groeschen ? tgroeschen@enquirer.com ? June 26, 2008


    Dustin Carter gained national attention as a wrestler at Hillsboro, but his inspirational saga will not end there.

    The College of Mount St. Joseph announced Wednesday that Carter will join the school's wrestling team this season. Carter, who had most of his four limbs amputated when he was 5 years old because of a rare blood disease, reached the Ohio Division II state tournament at 103 pounds this past season.

    Carter was not shy when asked Wednesday about his collegiate wrestling goals.

    "To be an All-American," he said.

    Carter had a 40-4 record his senior season. He said he also considered Wilmington College before deciding on Mount St. Joseph.

    There are no athletic scholarships in NCAA Division III, but students can receive aid for academics. Carter said he will receive an undisclosed amount of grant money when he attends the Mount, which is in Delhi Township.

    "It's going to be another challenge for me," Carter said. "I'm going to have to work hard to be successful."

    Carter wrestled at 103 pounds in high school, the lowest weight class in Ohio wrestling. In college he will wrestle at 125, the lowest college weight. Carter said he has been working out and has increased his weight to 126 pounds.

    Casey Stouffer, Mount St. Joseph's coach, said Carter has earned a spot on the team.

    "He was a state qualifier and he competed at a top level," Stouffer said. "He's a very good wrestler to get on our team, with his background."

    Carter said his college studies will involve his plans to be a health teacher and/or land a job in the nutrition field.

    Carter's immediate plans involve an appearance on the "Best Damn Sports Show Period" on Fox Sports Net. Carter said he leaves for California on Monday to set up his appearance on the show; the telecast date is uncertain.
