Hunter Hudson tried to kick a field goal one day and found out he was pretty decent.
Add it to the list of his positions.
The two-year Chandler starter is a senior who has played wide receiver and quarterback while also kicking. This year, he will likely be a defensive back, too.
Q: How do you get to the point of playing four different positions?
A: My coaches just kind of moved me around wherever and I'll just do whatever they tell me to do. It gets kind of tiring but I think it's a lot of fun because you get to learn pretty much everything. The more positions you play the more you've got to know. Being quarterback you need to know about everything, but you don't have to do everything. The others you have to actually know what it's like to play those positions.
Do you understand the game better because of it?
Yes I do. It's made me understand the point of view of every position because some people like to gripe when things happen and people like to point fingers at other players on another position. When you play so many positions, you understand what they go through.
What does Chandler need to do this year to do better in the district?
Definitely take care of the ball a little better and not have as many turnovers. Our defense was really good last year and we lost quite a few people so I'm looking for a few people to step it up.
