In the 1994 AFL Draft, Carter was selected by Essendon with pick 39, but he decided to remain in South Australia and wait for Port Adelaide's entry to the league in 1997. He already played for Port Adelaide in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) and was a zone selection for the AFL club.

Carter made 10 appearances for Port Adelaide in the 1997 AFL season, including their first ever game, against Collingwood at the MCG, but was delisted at the end of the year.[2]

A half back flanker, he was a member of five Port Adelaide premiership teams in the SANFL during the 1990s.
