Name: Tre Hunter
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Tre: Smart, Smooth, & Solid!
Q: How are you going to train/prepare this offseason in preparation for the draft or other pro opportunities?
Tre: I am currently doing pro-day performance training at Michael Johnson Performance facility in Dallas, TX. Pro day March 20th. After Pro-Day, I will be working out back home in Monroe, LA until word of tryouts and the Draft/Free Agency.
Q: If you could compare yourself to one current or former NFL player who would it be and why?
Tre: Not per say total ability or talent wise, but style, I would compare myself to an all around safety similar to Eric Berry or Earl Thomas. I can cover wideouts and slots as well as Tight Ends, have been successful playing in the box, as well as over top whether free or in zone coverage.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
Tre: I usually take my film study and break it down to tendencies of the offense we’re playing (what kind of plays they run on money downs), along with who is the target on majority of those plays if it’s a pass. As long as breaking down wideouts and tight ends, always watch to see how they release on certain routes, and what are their favorite routes, ff they are afraid of, or not as good releasing while pressed. As well as how they want to catch the ball (body or good hand catcher).
Q: What separates you from other players at your position?
Tre: I believe my knowledge of the game is on a different level than most players coming out of college. My mind helps me make a lot of plays, from film study, small tips of body positioning and eyes of an opponent, I almost always pick up on things before or during a game that can help me make plays.
Q: What kind of abilities would you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Tre: Once again I would have to say my mind, how fast I catch on and can learn a playbook, as well as how it helps me transition to playing faster on the field.
Q: What is your final pitch/sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
Tre: A rangy, intelligent defensive back, on and off the field who lives for competing and getting better. I pride myself on doing my job everyday and every play to help the goal of the group. Not limited to any position, nor role, great special teams player. Good numbers and even better film as a 2.5 year starter. Best games were against the best of competition. (Oklahoma 2016, Auburn 2016, Alabama 2015 to name a few personal favorites). Underrated my entire life, so my entire life I’ve worked for this. Whatever team signs me will not be taking a chance, but making a great decision of open faith!
