Carr, Wampus Cats set sights on 7A championship

Jamarion “Boogie” Carr and the Conway Wampus Cats gave fans one of those all-time seasons to remember in 2021. Carr led the team in rushing in what was a balanced offensive attack for the Wampus Cats, pushing Conway all the way back to the 7A semifinals for the second straight year. 

“The ultimate goal for this team is a state championship,” Carr said. “The city deserves one, and we all do, as well, for the hard work we are putting in. Hopefully, my contributions of leadership and experience will help the team reach this goal.”

Carr earned 7A Central All-Conference honors as a sophomore and 7A All-State honors as a junior. 

“Boogie always has such a great attitude,” said Conway Head Coach Keith Fimple. “He never panics, he’s always encouraging, and he runs the last play just as hard as the first. This year, the sky is the limit. He will be the leader I know he can be.”

Carr also plays basketball and is involved in Caring Cats. He has an offer from Ouachita Baptist University and has an interest in psychology. 

“I have my own mental health awareness website that I write on to try and share some of my experiences that others may relate to and give ways I overcame them,” Carr said. “No matter what happens, I’ll keep a smile on my face because at the end of the day, I’m blessed every step that I take on that field.”
