Kicked and Punted from High School at Marysville High School in Marysville, Ohio through college at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas.
Harding University was the best place for Canterbury to develop, not only as an athlete, but was given great examples as coaches. Micah attests his success in college to his coaching staff for pushing him to the next level every day. The coaching staff at Harding University was especially impactful on his life, showing him how to become a Godly Husband to his college sweetheart of 10 years, their four children, and a coach who tries to transform kids lives for the better.
After college, Micah was fortunate enough to help start an Indoor Football team from Louisville, Kentucky in 2011 serving as a Team Captain. Canterbury stayed with the Kentucky Xtreme (Continental Indoor Football League) from it beginning to the untimely end in 2014. However, the Xtreme is resurrecting in the spring of 2020 and will begin its quest for the National Arena League Championship. The Xtreme would later give Canterbury the greatest honor of his athletic playing career by retiring his jersey number (82).
