🔼 For the Trill of It. For senior defensive lineman Trill Carter, coming to Auburn was a dream come true. It was always the school he wanted to attend, and he never gave up on that goal. 

After an impressive playing career at Minnesota and Texas, Carter transferred to Auburn in January with one season left to play.

“Before I started getting recruited in high school, this was my dream school,” he said. “I had always wanted to play here because some people from my hometown played here, like Montravius Adams and Big Kat Bryant.”

Read On the Plains With Trill Carter for more on his team goals for his final season, his love of mentoring kids and how his high school coach inspired his goal of becoming a football coach.
