Hunter Gantt led the Bridgeport Bulls in receiving and rushing in 2013.
Gantt hauled in 62 passes for 503 yards and five scores. He added 223 yards rushing and another five touchdowns.
The versatile Gantt will now try to carve out a spot in the Howard Payne University offense. Gantt inked a letter of intent with the NCAA Division III school Monday.
“On my first visit down there, I got the impression that everything was about family,” Gantt said. “It’s a place where I can apply myself and become a better person.”
Gantt was a District 9-3A pick at receiver this past year.
“He did a great job for us his junior and senior year,” said Bridgeport coach Danny Henson. “He had to play a lot of different positions and be a versatile player for us.”
Gantt said moving on to the next level is a big opportunity.
“Not a lot of people get this opportunity,” he said. “It’s special to get a chance to play college football.
“The game is going to be faster. They have a very high-powered offense. I’ll have to pick up the offense. I’ll need a lot more endurance and be more consistent.”
