Wyatt HunterWyattHunter5'11" | RBGrinnell | 2021IA put together a memorable season last year for Grinnell.

But the Class of 2021 prospect has even bigger goals in mind for this coming season.

Hunter ran for 1,589 yards and scored 23 touchdowns last year for the Tigers on 213 carries, averaging 7.5 yards per attempt.

"I wanna break more rushing records and be the best running back in the state of Iowa," Hunter said.

While carrying the load for the Grinnell offense, Hunter showed his dual-threat abilities in the passing game with 15 receptions for 236 yards and two more scores. Oh, and he also recorded 41.5 tackles with six for loss and three sacks on the defensive side of the ball.

Rumors of football being delayed in the state have surfaced in recent weeks, but Hunter believes he will be stepping on the field with his teammates this fall.

"I am 99.99 percent sure we’re going to play football," he said. "They had baseball, so why not football?"

To stay in shape, Hunter and his teammates have been putting in the work.

"A couple of guys and I have a weight room where we go to grind six days a week," he said.
