The buzz around the Havelock High football stadium had little to do with the Rams’ dominating 41-7 victory over South Central.

Instead, family, friends, well-wishers and many others in the stadium had the chance to see and talk with an NFL football player, Bruce Carter.

The former Havelock High standout attended Friday’s football game as his pro team — the Dallas Cowboys — enjoyed a bye week.

"It feels good. I haven’t been here in a while. It’s like a homecoming," Carter said of his four-day visit home. "Seeing the whole football atmosphere at high school, it’s been great."

At the end of Friday’s game, Havelock coach Jim Bob Bryant introduced Carter to his players and thanked him for a $10,000 donation that went toward renovation of the school’s weight room.

Carter told the players to keep pushing each other and keep playing together as a team.

"They’re great," Carter said of the current 7-1 Rams. "They put up a lot of points and they play together, and their defense plays well. They look like a solid team."
