Time has a way of slowing down for Carter Putt and Jared Long. Credit hours of practices on Sundays between Putt, the Heritage Academy junior quarterback, and Long, his standout junior wide receiver. The duo started their work last season, when Putt learned how and where to put the ball so the 6-foot-4 Long could go up and get it.
