In which BracketCat counts down the 14th day until the 2018 kickoff with a profile of quarterback Hunter Hall.

#14 Hunter Hall
Hunter Hall (14) was forced into action a couple of times last season as the No. 4 quarterback. Now he is likely to be the No. 3 guy, but I really hope we don’t have to see him at all this year. I’ve had enough of that quarterback shuffle to last for me decades.

Goal No. 14: CONSISTENCY. Your very, very best every time.

Hunter Lee Hall (b. April 19, 1997) is a preferred walk-on quarterback from Clearwater who redshirted in 2015 and did not see any game action in 2016. He will provide depth behind virtual co-starters Alex Delton and Skylar Thompson, as well as operate the scout team.

Hall completed a 36-yard pass to Nick Lenners in the 2017 spring game. He followed that up by completing 4 of 7 passes for 89 yards for the White team in the 2018 spring game, including a nifty 45-yard touchdown to Chabastin Taylor, plus one carry for 2 yards.

Amid the M.A.S.H. unit that was the 2017 KSU quarterback corps, Hall saw action against Oklahoma State and in the Cactus Bowl against UCLA, but he did not record any statistics.

Hall played under head coach Dirk Ankerholz at Clearwater High School, where he helped the Indians to a regional runner-up finish, earned all-conference honors, and also played two years of baseball, four of basketball, and two in track and field.

After missing the high school playoffs in 2012, he led the Indians to a 4-2 record heading into district play and had them poised to break into the postseason.

But alas, Hall fractured his right fibula in the seventh game of the season. After his injury, Clearwater lost two of its last three games and the team’s playoff dreams were dashed.

Hall is an impressive athlete who has quite an arm. He was one of just four Kansas athletes to break 200 feet in the javelin in 2015, throwing for 200-5 at the Holcomb Class 4A Regional.

Hall’s father, Craig, attended K-State and his sister, Amanda, played volleyball at Nicholls State.
