A senior from Dublin, Georgia, Carr had three major decisions, one technical fall and one pin last month.
  His only loss in the opening month was to No. 7 Zach Zavatsky of Virginia Tech in sudden victory.

Carr was named SoCon Wrestler of the Week on Nov. 8 after going 4-0 in the Hokie Open. He recorded two major decisions in his last three matches to end the month of November, boosting him to No. 13 in the nation at 184 pounds.
