Keaontay isn’t the only Ingram featured as part of Carthage’s high-powered offense. While defensive coordinators will be losing sleep in hopes of slowing the Texas running back commit in 2017, rising wide receiver Dewaylon Ingram will give defensive back coaches nightmares of their own.
2016 served as a breakout season for Ingram, who hauled in 61 receptions for 977 yards and nine touchdowns. His recruitment has since begun to gain momentum, with offers coming in from Abilene Christian, Arkansas State, Missouri State, Northeastern State, Texas A&M Commerce and Texas Southern. Texas State is showing interest, as well, and if Ingram’s junior season and dominating display at the Texas 7on7 Championships is a sign of things to come, 2017 could see the senior blossom into a high-level recruit and one of the better pass-catchers in the state.

When Carthage arrived in College Station for the Texas 7on7 Championships a couple weekends ago, Ingram said the goal in mind was to become the last team standing. Such aspirations didn’t come to fruition, as Carthage fell to Cuero in the opening round of the Championship Bracket, but Ingram dominated the pass-happy setting throughout.
“Just keep doing it, keep killing,” Ingram told TexasHSFootball of his mindset after having so much success. “I don’t think anybody out here can guard me.”
The 6’2, 160-pounder wasn’t wrong.
Of the few games TexasHSFootball was on hand for, Ingram looked the part of a prospect capable of competing with anyone, which was Ingram’s goal entering the tournament.
“Just show that I can play with anybody on the field,” Ingram said of what he wanted to prove.
With a breakout junior effort and noteworthy showing in College Station in the rearview, Ingram’s focus has shifted towards his final season as a Bulldog. Along with maintaining a “keep working” mindset as part of Carthage team looking to repeat as state champions, Ingram has some lofty goals of his own in mind.
“Set a few records [at Carthage] for the younger ones.”
