Former Danville Christian Academy basketball player Preston Carter will be attending Midway University where he will continue his career as a student-athlete in the 2019-20 season.

He will be only the second male student-athlete from DCA to play basketball at the collegiate level, as well as only the fourth male student-athlete and sixth overall to play sports at the next level.

“Preston thanks all his coaches from AAU, little league, middle, and high school,” DCA said in a press release. “In honor of his senior year where he played for the Danville Christian Academy Warriors varsity basketball team, Preston says he will always be a warrior for Christ.”

Midway University is a member of the National Association for Intercollegiate Athletics and plays in the River States Conference. Last year, it finished a school best 12-16, with a 5-13 conference record in its third year as a program. Carter hopes to help the Eagles, who have improved their record every year, continue that upward trend and get them their first winning season.

“We are always in search of players for our program who are going to push themselves and their team to be better and who will be great representatives of Midway, both on the court and off,” Midway coach Joe Krupinski said of his incoming freshman. “Preston certainly fits that criteria.  He has shown a great desire to compete at the next level and to be the best player, student and person he can be. His energy and work ethic should be great additions to our program at Midway.”
