Eaton High School senior Hunter Erb already has a strong pedigree on the football field, and soon he’ll add another accolade: becoming the his school’s player to play in an All-American game.

On January 8, 2022, Hunter will play in the nationally televised Adidas All-American Bowl. The game will air live on NBC across the country, showcasing some of the top high school football recruits in the United States. When he first learned of the honor, Hunter said, he was ecstatic.

“I actually found out I was invited through a Twitter message from someone I talked with before who works at [collegiate recruiting website] 247 Sports,” said Hunter, an offensive tackle. “My first reaction was to call my parents to tell them I got invited and I planned on committing to it right away.”

Hunter exhibits an intimidating presence on the football field for opponents, with a height of 6’ 6” and a strong playmaking ability that has garnered him a four-star ranking in multiple recruiting profiles. He has committed to Texas A&M, which he said was a perfect fit after meeting the coaches and learning more about the program.

“Their playing style is the best way for me to potentially prepare for the NFL,” he said. “When I visited, I knew right away that’s where I wanted to go.”

Hunter said he hopes for a long playoff run during his final year at Eaton, then making an impact on the Texas A&M football team and possibly playing as a true freshman. He has long-term ambitions of playing in the NFL and currently is considering majoring in architecture at Texas A&M.
