Hunter Hall has been one of the most reliable players over the last few years at Glynn Academy. Taking over the starting linebacker role halfway into the 2014 season as a freshman was no easy task, but the instinctive linebacker jumped into the starting spot and never let go.
Hall is a tough football player, and seems to be cut from the same cloth as intense defensive-minded Head Coach Rocky Hidalgo. Over the last three season Hall has amassed an amazing 290 tackles, and has been the central figure on the Red Terrors’ defense.
The offseason has gone well for Hall, especially with how he has performed in the classroom. “I felt this offseason was a good one for me both on and off the field,” Hall said. “I started it off by taking the ACT, which I made a 26 on, and I feel it helped my plans to play at the next level.” Hall is a hard worker in the classroom and currently holds a 3.81 GPA.
On the field, he continued his success, making improvements to his athleticism. “Next, I worked really hard on conditioning and my footwork this summer to increase my speed and agility for this season.” The senior has attended several camps as well. “I attended camps at Kennesaw State, Georgia Southern, Mercer, UT-Chattanooga, West Georgia and the ESPFC. I felt it was important to get out to these schools and let the coaches see my abilities first hand,” he said.
West Georgia came away impressed, and after watching him go through drills at their camp they were ready to offer the speedy linebacker. Hall ran an impressive 4.6 forty time this offseason, which has certainly stimulated some additional college interest. He was also rated in our South Georgia Top 100 at the beginning of this summer.
Heading into his final season of high school football, Hall has come to grips with these being his final games at Glynn Academy. Over the last year, he believes that his leadership skills have dramatically improved.
“I feel one area where I improved the most since last season is my team leadership. I have worked very hard to become the leader my team needs me to be in order reach our goals as a team.”
Over the last year, Hall has made a lot of improvements in the weight room in all three major categories (bench press, squat and power clean). Those improvements should certainly help his play, but he believes that his improved mental toughness will have an even larger impact.
Hall’s goals heading into his senior year are very ambitious. “For this season I want to lead my team to a State Championship. Next, I would really like to keep on my pace of a +100 tackles a season and lastly I hope to pick up a Div I offer.”
The star defender is one of the best individual solo tacklers in South Georgia, and could end up playing weakside or inside linebacker at the next level. This fall he has planned visits to Kennesaw State, Georgia Southern, West Georgia and Army.
