Another Nealy Making A Name For Himself

Hunter Nealy (Reagan HS) comes from a strong bloodline of athletes. His father, Ed, played 10 seasons in the NBA and his older brother, Spencer, played significantly in all 12 games as a true freshman and was one of the first defensive linemen off the bench for the Aggies in 2009. The 6'2", 300pound offensive lineman is trying to make a name for himself by going to events such as the Army combine.

Hunter Nealy comes from a strong bloodline of athletes. His father, Ed, played 10 seasons in the NBA and his older brother, Spencer, played significantly in all 12 games as a true freshman and was one of the first defensive linemen off the bench for the Aggies in 2009. Hunter might be undersized at his position on the field, but he possesses the same passion and drive as his older brother and father. The 6'-2", 300 pound offensive lineman is trying to make a name for himself by going to events such as the Army combine.

"I surprised myself in a lot of events at the combine. I ran a lot faster than most of the kids my size. I actually think I did pretty well. I benched 23 reps at 185 and my unofficial 40 time was a 5.4. I'm trying to get to as many events as I can to improve my skills."

Hunter recognizes that he might be undersized at the guard position and might be suited for another spot on the line.

"I did play left guard this year but I want to move to center because that is going to be more of my primary position in college."

The San Antonio native understands what he needs to work on to get to the next level.

"I need to work on my 40 time the most. Everything else is pretty solid. I just need to work on my speed."

Older brother Spencer Nealy was one of seven true freshmen to appear in all 12 games for the Aggies and serves as a mentor to his younger brother.

"We go out running a lot and work out together. He really wants me to play at A&M and he thinks it is where I belong. He tells me that I need to work on my speed and strength and that I need to get tougher. He knows this because we used to go up against each other at Reagan all the time."

Hunter has his sights on playing collegiate football at Texas A&M.

"It's always been my dream of mine to play at A&M so if I have to walk on for a spot then that's what I have to do. "
