Giaonni Hunter among the best ’25s at both RB and LB
Giaonni Hunter, who spells his name a bit differently than one might expect, is a player in the ’25 class of prospects in Kentucky one might take the extra time needed to learn the proper spelling. We believe there are college recruiters, this instant, learning to spell it while you read this article. That is because the young, talented RB/LB is tearing up Class 4A, District 4. Not many sophomores are dominating action like Hunter is doing.Fletcher W. Long, KPGFootball Senior Scout
Shelby County High has a spectacular facility in which to play and host football games. It is called Robert Doyle Stadium and our friends at Independence Bank partnered with that community to come together and celebrate that blessing.
Shelby County has many things about which to be thankful. Outstanding, up and coming football talent is just the tip of the iceberg.
They have a saying around the Rocket program. The saying is, It gets greater later!
While this is true, provided you put in the effort history has shown it does get greater later, that doesn’t mean it isn’t pretty darn good right now. Tomorrow is today for some of the young stars the Rockets have dominating action on Friday nights.
For ’25’s Giaonni Hunter, later seems to be right now. Hunter is killing it this season.
We have Hunter’s stats through seven games. As of our writing this piece, the Rockets have played an eighth game and those stats haven’t been published on line. However, if you forecast his performance forward using his “averages,” he is very likely a thousand-yard rusher, already this season, with Waggoner and Anderson County yet to play.
Through seven (7), Hunter has carried the football 151-times from scrimmage, gained 945-yards, and scored 12-rushing TD’s. That is 6.26 or so yards per carry and 135-yards per game. His 12-TD’s figures to average 1.7 or so rushing TD’s per night. All told, Hunter is the leading rusher in both yards and carries, the team’s leading scorer.
He isn’t just an offensive player either though two-way guys at 4A are not too common. Hunter plays LB and, judging by his production, plays it mighty well.
Hunter is third on the team in tackles. Hunter is third on the team in QB-sacks.
Now Shelby County is struggling at 3-5 on the year. It will get greater later. The reason for the optimism is having young talent on hand the likes of Hunter and his teammates.
