The award encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities. To be eligible for the award, a player must have notable achievements in four areas of excellence: Classroom, community, character and competition.\r\n\r\n\u201cIt\u2019s an honor to receive the Senior CLASS Award,\u201d said Carter, who earned second-team all-America honors from The Sporting News and third-team honors from the NABC. \u201cI\u2019ve always tried to stay focused on the tasks that are in front of me and not letting other things distract me. My parents have always kept me focused and levelheaded, and I\u2019ve always focused on the bigger picture. If you stay focused and stay on course, anything can happen. I\u2019ve been a hard worker on and off the court, and it just shows that hard work pays off on the court and in the classroom.\u201d\r\n\r\n\u201cHe is as good as a guy as anyone could ever ask for,\u201d head coach Bob Huggins said. \u201cHe\u2019s the hardest worker I\u2019ve ever coached. He\u2019s a great student and a great, great teammate. People in the community absolutely love him, and he volunteers for everything. We do a lot of community service, and he\u2019s the first guy in line. I think if you sat down and thought about what you wanted in a student-athlete, you can say just watch Jevon because he fits the total description.\u201d\r\n\r\nCarter is scheduled to graduate with a degree in sport management this spring. He carries a 3.5 grade-point average.\r\n\r\nCarter also has dedicated time to visiting the WVU Children\u2019s hospital and patients at HealthSouth Rehabilitation Center, and encourages students to pursue education and responsibility and to stay away from drugs and alcohol.\r\n\r\n<strong>TRACK AND FIELD<\/strong>\r\n\r\nThe Mountaineers began competition at the Raleigh (N.C.)
