Tyrone Carter, Ex-Gophers Safety, To Be Honored On Saturday

Ex-Minnesota Golden Gophers star safety Tyrone Carter was inducted into the school's M Club Hall of Fame this week, and on Saturday night he'll be honored during Minnesota's game vs. the Syracuse Orange. Carter was one of nine Gopher athletes to be inducted in 2012, and one of two football players along with offensive lineman John Williams, who lettered at Minnesota in the late-1960s.

Carter won the Jim Thorpe Award in 1999 and was an All-American in 1998 and 1999. He was a fourth round pick of the Minnesota Vikings, where he played three seasons before a one-year stopover with the New York Jets. From there he played for the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2004-2009, where he was a part of two Super Bowl winning teams. He last played in the NFL in 2010, when he appeared in seven games for the San Diego Chargers.
