Former Ohio State receiver Duron Carter rewrote the definition for an “excessive celebration.”
The son of legendary NFL wide receiver, Cris Carter, is now in the Canadian Football League and went a little over the top Thursday night after catching a touchdown pass for the Montreal Alouettes against the Ottawa Redblacks.
Carter stomped out of the end zone and headed straight for the Redblacks sidelines, where he knocked over an Ottawa coach.
The Redblacks weren’t exactly thrilled with that.
The collision prompted some pushing and shoving along the sideline, but that didn’t phase Carter, who continued his celebration as if nothing happened. Carter was ejected from the game immediately after the altercation.

Many believed Carter was set to follow in his father’s footsteps after he saw playing time as a freshman for the Buckeyes in 2009. Ultimately, he was forced to leave Columbus, Ohio for academic issues. He attended Coffeyville Community College (Kansas) and attempted to transfer to Florida Atlantic, but was denied a scholarship waiver. Carter left FAU without ever playing a snap before going undrafted in 2012 and landing with the Alouettes. He signed with the Indianapolis Colts during the 2015 offseason, but was let go by the Colts.
Carter is now in his third season with Montreal. Clearly, his once-promising career hasn’t gone as expected.
