Athlete of the Month: Hunter Miner

Josh Preston

This month’s Colt Nation athlete of the month is sophomore Hunter Miner. Hunter plays catcher for the West Jessamine Baseball team, and has to step into the position of a major varsity player this year. Having played tee-ball since the age of 5, Miner says he was more ready to take on the role. “Catching for varsity, and just being a part of the team as a whole have probably been my favorite parts of the year,” says Miner. With high expectations placed on the West baseball team since the beginning of the season, Miner says hopefully they can fulfill those expectations. “Our sights are set on State, which is our ultimate goal this year.”

Hunter says hopefully in the future he could play at the next level. “I think one day I could get a Division 1 scholarship. I believe that you get out what you put in, so with hard work, I think that a scholarship is a reasonable goal to set.”
