Ruskin, October 9, 2018– Top 2020 running back Tino Hunt is stampeding through national averages despite the orange and white’s rocky 1-6 season thus far. Hunt’s relentless week-after-week labors stick out like a sore thumb and he’s already covered a TON of real estate. Here’s a peak into the hard-nosed rusher down South making the most out of a little.
Tino is nothing short of spectacular as an explosive power back, complimenting his punishing North-South rushing style. His solid 6’ 185-pound build combined effortlessly with his quick, agile feet and even quicker instincts produces some intriguing highlight reels. Hunt makes his presence felt undeniably- lowering his pads is second nature along with a low center of gravity, makes for a tedious task to corral. Better break out your tackling fundamentals book out now, because he’s going through you or around you-take your pick.
Hunt is racking up a plethora of yards in his 2018-19 campaign, covering vast amounts green grass as far as the eye can see.

In 7 games played, he’s tallied 1,029 total yards on 160 carries averaging 6.4 YPC, with 147 YPG and 2 receptions for 45 yards, accumulating 10 rushing scores! Tino has ran for at least 100+ yards in 6 of his 7 showcases, with his top performance arising in a tough 28-56 loss to Plant City, where he rushed for 205 yards on 22 touches, averaging nearly a first down with 9.3 YPC, along with a long-run of 45 (his longest breakaway so far) and 2 TD’s.
Safe to say junior stud Tino Hunt is producing among the best in his class with elite talent to move on to bigger pastures on the road to recruitment; displaying no sign of slowing down the unyielding charge.
In the glistening Friday Lights, Lennard couldn’t finish off Durant in Plant City last week, losing 21-31. This Friday Tino and the Longhorns will face off against their rival 7A foe East Bay, without home-field advantage again, in a conference showdown at 7:30p.
