High School Football Spotlight: Carson Vanhoose-Clinton-Massie- #6 Junior RB SS

Carter VanHoose in the spotlight!
Publish Date: 12/13/2020
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

I was able to watch his young man and his team play twice last season. He is another two-way player, who is on the smaller size but plays like a much bigger one. He can take the ball inside or outside and do so with little difficulty. On defense, he will lay the wood on you and make you think how does someone his size hit like a truck? I am not sure how many college coaches have made their way to Clarksville, Ohio to watch this kid but I will say they could not have walked away without thinking, that kid can help our team.

1- Speed kills especially in football with that in mind was Wyoming the fastest team you have faced?

Wyoming was one of the fastest teams we played along with Waverly.


2- Your team has a very stout ground and pound offense and it seems like anyone who runs the ball for you guys has success. How good are you linemen and how do the backs thank them for the work they do?


The offense of line has been the main factor to our backfield’s success. Our line was the fastest it has ever been in a while. I think I can speak for the other backs in saying that we appreciate all the trench work they do every game. None of the backs take credit for the yards or touchdowns, it’s always the line that gets the credit.


3-In the two games I caught you guys this past season you were a major part of the offense. In 2021 will your workload be even heavier?


No, my workload won’t be any heavier. We have an amazing backfield that is really fast. Due to injuries this past season, Colton Trampler and I both had to make up for our losses in the backfield. I’m really excited for everyone to come back healthy and to show how fast our backfield really is.


4-Clinton-Massie has a ton of history when it comes to football you will be a senior for the 2021 season how much pressure is on the senior class to build on that history.


Playing football at Massie is a tradition. I remember watching the 2012 and 2013 teams win back to back state titles. You always know that’s the ultimate goal. Since the time that my class stepped on the field, in 3rd grade, that has been the goal. There’s always pressure to perform at the top of your game. I hope we live up to the expectations of Massie football.


5- Do you prefer offense or defense? Why?


I really like playing offense. But I’ll play wherever the coach puts me. I just like running the ball.


6- What was the hardest part of this season with all of the covid stuff going on?


The hardest part of the season was not knowing if we were going to play the next game.


7- It is almost a given you guys will make the playoffs how do you and the team put that on the back burner so that you can get through the season without being bored?


I think this team understands that you can never take a game/team for granted. We focus on one play at a time, one game at a time. Hopefully, after a lot of hard work, we will end the year with a state title.


8- What the worse thing about practice?


The worst thing about practice is tackle tubs and the turf burns you get every time you do them.


9- On the rosters, I have looked at you are listed at 5-9, 160 pounds. How do you use your size to your advantage?

“ It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” – Mark Twain

I’ve always been one of the smallest guys on the field, but I don’t care. I never thought being smaller was any different. The advantage of being smaller is that I’m harder to see and harder to catch. I can’t get through the holes faster.


10- This is one of those questions I ask a lot. It’s 4 and goal from the five-yard line, you guys trail by five. Your number is called what play are you hoping the coach calls?


The play I’m hoping the coach calls would be our bread and butter play, it’s classified.
