"I just like getting in there and hitting people," Hunter told Dawgman.com earlier this week. With 114 tackles last year for Fife, there's no question Adam knows how to stick his nose into a pile and make contact. He was named 1st team All-Seamount league for his work as a linebacker last year and was also named honorable mention All-League as a punter. He laid claim to a school record with 11 touchdowns from his fullback spot. "I'm aggressive, but I like to pick my points," he said when asked about his style of play. "I like to use my quickness." His latest 40 time was a 4.65 and he has a 260-pound bench press and 380-pound squat lift to his credit.
And when he's on the field, Adam makes it real clear who's the boss, at least vocally. "I'm verbal out
there," he said. "I'm real intense. I talk trash. I go after everyone. I don't have any
favorite things to say, whatever pops up at the time."
And his strength? "Well, I'd say I run well from sideline to sideline," he said. "We play a 4-3 and I
play the weakside outside
linebacker. Teams started running away from my side. I caught Shelton Sampson from behind
last year. I don't know if he was going full speed or not but I'll take it. It felt good."
Hunter has started to receive letters from prospective colleges, including Washington, Oregon,
Stanford, San Diego and Washington State. He recently attended Washington's Junior Day last
"I went to Junior Day but I was late because we were playing basketball," he said. "I had been on
campus a couple of times but the coaches and players made me feel really comfortable there. I got a
chance to talk to Coach (Randy) Hart and Coach (Rick) Neuheisel."
His first impressions of the Husky head man? "He's cool, a lot of fun to talk to," Adam said. "He took
the time to talk to me and my Mom, so that was nice. You could tell that he's really easy to get along
Expect the Huskies to pay attention to Hunter's play this fall. "Coach Hart hinted that he's going to be
seeing me soon," he said. "He said that I should come up and check out
the spring practices. I think I'm going to do that."
A lifelong Washingtonian, Adam did live in Reno, Nevada during his 9th and 10th grade years but it
did not have an affect on how he feels about the hometown school. "I'm real high on the Huskies," he
said. "I've always been a fan of U-Dub since Napoleon Kaufman was there."
