INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Heritage Christian’s Matt Hunt does it all. As a quarterback, he leads the state in passing, and as a defensive back, he has more interceptions (3) than he’s thrown interceptions (1).
“I feel like I’m playing well,” said the senior quarterback. “I’m definitely making better decisions with the ball. I only have one interception so that’s a plus,”
In the first four weeks of the season, Hunt has led Ron Qualls’ Eagles squad to a 3-1 record. That while also individually amassing almost 1,000 passing yards and 15 touchdown passes. Coach Qualls credits his work in the weight room to his improvement this season.
“He’s so much stronger,” added Qualls. “He’s always had a high football IQ, but now that he’s worked on his strength, he’s so much quicker so that’s helped him.”
His high IQ isn’t just in football nature alone. He’s a member of the National Honor society and several Ivy League schools like Penn, Princeton and Yale have already approached him about playing football there.
