East Jessamine’s Seth Hunt will be playing Division I football in the fall after signing with Eastern Kentucky University last month.
The senior has been recruited as a fullback by the Colonels.
Hunt had a productive senior year on both sides of the ball, but his junior year was cut short by a torn ACL.
“I’ve watched the young man grow up ... went through the heart break of the torn ACL and had a few tears with him and watched him come back his senior year,” East Jessamine coach Mike Bowlin said.
“(Tearing my ACL) was the worst time of my life. I’m not going to lie,” Hunt said “I never gave up ... Eight months of physical therapy was really tough.”
Hunt has wanted to go to Eastern since he was kid and has fallen in love with the program.
Most schools had been recruiting Hunt to play defensive end, but Eastern came with the fullback approach — which Hunt took to immediately.
