Hunter Glasgow Deerfield Athlete Class Of 2025 6'4 185

Hunter Glasgow how was your sophomore season? It was great! I had the opportunity to start on varsity as a sophomore which was a really cool experience. I got to know what it’s like competing at the varsity level and it made me a better overall player. We have a young and very skilled team so I’m excited for the seasons to come. What does football mean to you? Football has always been my favorite sport. I’ve been around it my whole life. My dad and uncles all played and some even had the opportunity to play in college. The amount of fun I have playing this sport compares to no other. The energy I get from playing under the lights in front of my home town is awesome. I have great coaches and great teammates that make it even better.

What was one of your favorite memories last season? I can’t really pick out a favorite moment because there was a lot of them but when we started off slow with a record of 1-3, we all became more motivated to win because we had to win out to make it to the playoffs. I think the best moment for me was that last regular season game when we clinched the playoffs and won conference because we worked so hard to get there. What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? I love to block. I take a lot of pride at blocking as a receiver because not many want to. It’s a great feeling when you bury a corner and your running back runs right behind you and gets a big gain. Obviously catching passes and scoring touchdowns are great, but I love blocking as much as I love doing those things also. What should college coaches know about you? I think college coaches should know that I love football. I love the work I get to put in during the offseason, and again as a receiver I love to block which not many others do. I can make plays happen on the field, and I love working with my teammates and coaches and building bonds with them. I want to play this sport for as long as I possibly can. What part of your game do you plan on working on in the offseason? I’m working on basically everything. One thing my coach tell us is to never become comfortable and that there is always room for improvement. I have a great trainer that is helping me become the best player I can possibly be. Skill work, speed work, and weight training are all what I’m working on this offseason.

How has Basketball helped your football technique? I think everybody should play at least two sports. I started playing basketball before football. I was tall at a young age so it took awhile for me to grow into my body and become coordinated. Dribbling a basketball has helped with that. It also really helps with my vertical jump and stamina as a whole. Going up to get a rebound is basically the same as going up and fighting for a 50/50 ball.
