Former Beloit College star seeking spot with Redskins

Beloit CollegeFormer Beloit College tight end Derek Carrier was featured in a story by the Richmond Times-Dispatch about how increasingly rare it is for players outside of college football’s Power Five conferences to stick in the NFL.

In the story, columnist Paul Woody notes that of the 90 players in the Redskins camp, only four played below the FBS level. Carrier though is an established player. He’s with his fourth team. He has played 36 games over five seasons – one of which was spent on the reserve squad – and has 28 career receptions.

Carrier is the fifth Beloit College to play in the NFL, but the other four played in the 1920s. At Beloit College, Carrier was a man among boys. He rewrote Beloit’s receiving record book, setting career marks for catches (189), yards (3,111) and touchdowns (29).
