On October 22, 2018, star senior athlete Carter Averette announced his commitment to continue his soccer career at the University of Lynchburg, as the first of the boys varsity soccer team to do so. Averette is well-respected amongst his teammates, with senior James O’Connell commenting,”He works extremely hard, and his talent is clear to see.”

Averette played many sports at a young age; however, soccer stuck out to him the most. He began his soccer career by joining Chesterfield United, a local club team. Averette’s passionate flame for the sport grew and at the age ten, he brought his talents to FC Richmond, for whom he currently plays. Upon Averette’s entry into Midlothian High School, he tried out for and made the boys varsity team as a freshman. Averette’s teammates are thrilled for his achievement. “I’m proud of him,” says senior Sammy Varela. “After all the work Carter has put in with the team and on his own, he truly deserves it. I can’t wait to see what he does on the next level!”

The highlight of his career thus far “would have to be being selected to play in Sweden in the Gothia Cup, which includes teams from all over the world,” reflects Averette. “I was given the opportunity to play against international competition and see soccer in a completely different way.” This, along with his experience with FC Richmond and the Midlo Boys Varsity Soccer team, has prepared Averette for the next step in his career, college.

Lynchburg scouts saw Averette compete in a local tournament and immediately took interest in him after his stellar play. After numerous emails and phone calls, Averette decided to commit to the college. The success of the team and coaches in a competitive conference is ultimately what sold him; however, he felt that the campus fit him as well. Averette is ecstatic to start his collegiate career for the Lynchburg Hornets this fall.
