18-year-old senior Hunter Smith is a standout football player at Central High School. In a recent game, he rushed for an impressive 191 yards and four touchdowns, caught three passes for 27 yards, and scored another touchdown. He also led the team with 11 tackles, punted twice, and converted five extra-point kicks. This outstanding performance helped his team secure a double-overtime win over Clearfield in the PIAA Class 3A playoffs.
Throughout the season, Smith has been a force to be reckoned with on the field. He has rushed for a staggering 977 yards and 23 touchdowns while accumulating an impressive 100 tackles. His team’s success this season is largely due to his contributions. They will face off against Hickory in the PIAA quarterfinals on Friday.
Coach Dave Baker had high praise for Smith’s performance, stating that he executed everything perfectly at critical moments. Smith’s favorite teacher is Mr. Logan, and he excels in statistics as a subject. When he’s not studying or playing football, he enjoys watching “The Wolf of Wall Street” and indulging in his go-to meal of chicken and rice.
Smith is looking forward to continuing his athletic career beyond high school and hopes to attend college someday. He dreams of living a fulfilling life and achieving great things in football. One interesting fact about Smith is that his love for football began when he played flag football as a child. He looks up to professional athlete Neil Walker and considers his family to be the most influential people in his athletic journey thus far
