Warhawks In The Hunt For Kissinger

Har-ber high school linebacker Hunter Kissinger is fresh off his official visit to the campus of ULM and took time with Warhawk Nation to talk about the trip and where the Warhawks stand.

Har-ber linebacker Hunter Kissinger admits he knew nothing about the ULM Warhawks, the city, or the campus before Coach Reffett and the staff at ULM started recruiting him.

"I honestly did not know what to expect on my way down here", said Hunter. "This is my first time in Monroe and on campus, and I was impressed".

The Warhawks have been courting Kissinger since early summer and liked him so much they extended the early offer.

"Coach Reffett and Coach Berry are great", said Hunter. "I came down here blind not knowing what to expect and I got a good feeling about what campus life would be like at ULM".

"You want to get a feel for the people your going to potentially play with, where your really wanted. Trust is huge and I trust the staff at ULM".

While on his visit Kissinger was hosted by former Arkansas Razorback and current ULM running back Mitch Bailey.

"Mitch was awesome, he's laid back and likes to hunt and fish just like me. He didn't try to put any pressure on me at all, we just talked about some of the good things that were happening at ULM.

Hunter turned in another strong season for Har-ber registering 105 tackles and helping the Wildcats reach the semi-finals in the playoffs. "We finished 8-2 in the regular season but lost to Bentonville 49-20 to end the season 10-3.

Kissinger does have some hardware as Har-ber was the reigning class 7A state champs, winning the title his junior season with a 12-1 record. Last year Hunter finished with 85 tackles, 9 qb hurries and 8 pass breakups.

With an impressive 4.58 forty time, the 6'3 Kissinger is being recruited by ULM to play the outside linebacker position.

"ULM is on top right now but I didn't want to make a quick decision while I was on campus. I wanted to get home, talk to my parents, pray about it, and then make a decision". "I do have my eye on that Florida State game in 2011 though, that would be an awesome game to play in".
