18-year-old Hunter Smith is a senior at Central High School and a standout football player. In a recent game, he had an impressive performance, rushing for 191 yards and four touchdowns, catching three passes for 27 yards, and scoring another touchdown. He also led the team with 11 tackles, punted twice, and converted five extra-point kicks. This performance helped his team to a double-overtime win over Clearfield in the PIAA Class 3A playoffs.
Throughout the season, Smith has been a key contributor to the team’s success, rushing for 977 yards and 23 touchdowns while racking up 100 tackles. His impressive play has earned him praise from Coach Dave Baker, who stated that he did everything right at crucial moments.
In addition to being an accomplished athlete, Smith is also an excellent student. His favorite teacher is Mr. Logan, and he enjoys statistics as a subject. When he’s not on the field or in the classroom, Smith can be found watching “The Wolf of Wall Street” or enjoying his go-to meal of chicken and rice.
Smith’s future goals include attending college and living a great life. He looks up to professional athlete Neil Walker and credits his family as being the most influential people in his athletic career. His proudest achievement came when he won a state baseball championship earlier this year.
As the Dragons prepare to face off against Hickory in the PIAA quarterfinals on Friday, Smith will undoubtedly be playing with confidence and determination after his impressive performance against Clearfield in the playoffs.
