Remick leads Panthers, Class 3A in senior season

“Carson Remick is a great leader and a great person,” the Mt. Pleasant football coach, Shawn Striegel, said of his starting linebacker and running back.

This year, Remick was a leader not only on his team, but in Class 3A. He was fourth in the class with 137 tackles on the season, just eight behind the class leader, and tied with two other players for the highest number of fumble recoveries with five on the season.

One of those fumble recoveries came in Friday’s senior night game — his final game on the Mt. Pleasant football team — and Remick returned it for the Panthers’ only touchdown on the night.

“He deserved it,” Striegel said. “He works hard, does everything you ask and more. So many times in a game, when a lot of kids would be down and out, he finds a way to make the play or make the tackle anyway.”

“Remick is a Panther through and through,” Striegel said. “He plays for the Panthers and not for himself. In moral value, in character, he’s right at the top.”
