Sherman Carter is a 6-foot-3 center who makes as big of an impact in the community as his stature does on the field. Sherman is takes every opportunity he is given to give back. One example of this was on May 7th, 2015. Sherman volunteered at St. Vincent de Paul alongside other Arizona Rattler lineman. They served food to the underprivileged families and played games with the children. From start to finish, Sherman had a big smile on his face that truly lit up the world for these families. His positive attitude and enthusiasm was contagious to the point that it was impossible not to crack a smile around him. The night ended with the Arizona Rattlers receiving an award from St. Vincent de Paul for their incredible efforts and admirable character. Sherman Carter played a huge role in the success of the volunteer opportunity and openly expressed his desire to participate as much as he possibly could. His 310-pound frame is evenly matched by how massive his smile and heart are which proves to be a great asset to the Arizona Rattlers.
