Eduardo Carmona Signs With Iowa State It is official: From the KFSM Channel 5 Website CHARLESTON - If patience is a virtue, Eduardo Carmona has more than many in the world today. After a very successful senior season at Charleston High School, Carmona went virtually unnoticed by most college coaches. However, one year later, Eddie is finally set to try out the biggest state in college athletics. Maybe his nickname should be "Lucky Eddie," because it was luck this summer that put Carmona in the position he's in today. In 2005, Carmona helped lead the Tigers to a state championship as the team's kicker. Carmona was steady and reliable from most distances on the field, so much he was named MVP of the championship game. He was regarded as one of the top prep kickers in the state, which is a very short list but received no offers for a division one school. In the fall of 2006, Carmona was in Goodman, Mississippi at Holmes Community College but didn't play football, instead Eddie was redshirted his freshman year. This summer while still in Mississippi, Carmona used a player combine to his advantage and after a performance many back home in Charleston were accustomed to seeing, coaches from all over came calling. On Friday, Carmona signed on to play at Iowa State University. Charleston Head Coach Doug Louchridge says all indications point at Eddie being able to compete for the starting job. A job, if all goes well, Lucky Eddie could keep for four seasons thanks to his redshirt year in community college. Cyclone players are to report to Ames, IA on July 31st. Practice begins the following day.
