Blazer Names to Know: #3 Sam Hunt

Middle Tennessee State transfer Sam Hunt is the second string QB for the Blazers, though he will see plenty of action throughout the season. Senior Williams has been given the start against opener Oklahoma, but with neither he nor Hunt solidifying the starting job Williams wins by default because of seniority and (limited) game experience. Hunt is considered the bigger running threat of the two and will be the likely candidate on option plays in the new look offense. He sat out last season after transferring, and only saw limited action during the 2004 season for MTSU after redshirting his freshman year. He did run the Blazer scout team during that time, though, and made enough of an impression during spring and fall practice to guarantee playing time this season.
