|A 2009 First-Team All-Sun Belt Conference choice, completed senior campaign with nine sacks and that tied the most of the season and the eighth most all-time by a Sun Belt player...Carrington, the 2008 SBC Defensive Player of the Year and First-Team All-SBC selection finished that season ranked tied for 14th in the nation in sacks (11.5) and seventh in the nation in tackles for loss (19)...Completed his career with 21.5 sacks for the second-most ever by an ASU performer and the fourth most in Sun Belt history...Very strong against the run but isn't totally consistent in other critical areas.|
