Meet the Ninjaneers

ninja-what?

Carter McCall

Mississippi-born, but Tennessee Volunteer through and through.

Carter McCall knows every word to Rocky Top, but he sings it with the signature twang of the Magnolia state. He will stop at nothing to get outside and on any given Saturday morning he might be found wearing waders and fly-fishing on the Holston River, clipped into his road bike, or strapped into his running shoes.

Carter is also a fierce competitor, namely at board games. He doesn’t shy away from confrontation, especially if you cut him off from a precious resource in Settlers of Catan. His sharp wit, big heart, and the ability to make a mean chocolate chip pancake have earned his colleagues’ respect (and a healthy dose of fear). His sense of humor has been called “dad-like,” but he’s ok with that because dads are funny.

  • Ninjaneer Name: Der
  • Favorite Quote: “Far better it is to dare mighty things even though checkered with failure than to take ranks with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.”
  • Guilty Pleasure: The Parent Trap remake with Lindsay Lohan
  • Dork Alert: Whenever a new Harry Potter book came out, he reread all the old ones before reading the new one.
