Senior Spotlight: David Hunter

By John Goolsby

David Hunter, who began playing football when he was five years old at Crestwood, has been a constant on the Shades Valley offensive line this year. “From the spring until now, David made great strides on and off the field,” said defensive line coach Robert Nelson, Jr. “He became one of the leaders for the offensive line.”

“David is a bubbly, lovable, and God-fearing young man with an open mind,” his mom, Felicite Hunter, said. “I love the aspirations that he has for life.”

Hunter has high aspirations and plans to attend Alabama State, Alabama A&M, or FAMU to be a Biomedical Engineer and design prostheses. The thought of helping people in need is what inspired Hunter to pursue that particular career path.

“I really love his enthusiasm and willingness to learn,” said his mom. Hunter’s willingness to learn and work hard has played a big part in the Mounties having their first winning season in five years.

“I want to be remembered as a happy, joyful person that would do anything to win,” said Hunter.

Hunter’s favorite verse is Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”
