View Full Version : Trindon Holiday, you are a Giant...

Jayson Carter joined the Rice football team as a walk-on last week, and already he's the biggest thing on the field — mostly because he's the smallest thing.

Carter, a running back, is 4-foot-9, 130 pounds, qualifying him for dwarfism according to an advocacy group, Little People of America, and making him one of the smallest players to ever play the game at any level. Other players who have checked in at the 5-foot-something range — LSU's kick returner Trindon Holliday was 5-5, and Kansas State receiver Brandon Banks was 5-7, and of course, who could forget Notre Dame defensive end Rudy Ruettiger at 5-6 to name a few — but the list of FBS players under 5-feet is very short (pun absolutely intended).

Carter, however, doesn't see his size as a limitation.

"If they ever come up with a device that measures the heart and put it on top of my head, they'll see I'm 6-9," said Carter told a local TV station.

Rice coach David Bailiff doesn't see Carter's size as a limitation either. Bailiff said he plans to somehow get Carter on the field this year. In what role, he didn't know, but Carter put up decent stats at Kipp High School, a charter school in Houston.

According to the website BeRecruited.com, Carter managed 1,233 yards and 18 touchdowns during his career at Kipp, but his most impressive stats come on defense where he had 92 tackles, 152 assisted tackles, three sacks and an interception. It's probably safe to assume that the majority of the guys he was tackling were bigger than he was. He also excelled as a kick returner.

Thought the same thing, I tell you those little guys can usually change direction so fast they are hard to catch as a RB. It's a bummer their down fall is pass protection in the pros. I would have loved to have seen Trindon bust some serious runs with the Texans as a RB instead of trying to make receiver but we gotta keep the QB healthy.

For this guy to make a college team like rice is pretty amazing.

I've never heard of him but I cant wait to see him play just for curiosity sake.

I bet you could line him up on Casey's back, hand the ball off up top to the little man, let Casey run and pound a few folks, then have Carter disengage off of Casey's back and run around whoever is left.

I base this on the fact that both of their initials are JC. Together they form the JC TANK!!!!

Did he play last night?

I know the coach said he wanted to get him some playing time.

The thing that stood out to me the most was his defensive play. That is crazy...I really want to see the guy play...
