Hunt began in youth base­ball leagues, and he later started at guard on three consecutive un­beaten basketball teams at Florence Junior High. In high school, he became a stellar performer on Coffee's unde­feated state championship team in 1964. He started at tailback for the Yellow Jackets and was named All-State as well as making the All-TVC and All Quad-Cities Teams. He scored 106 points during the '64 season, which represented more than half of the team's points. He scored 15 touchdowns and kicked 16 extra points. He also started at defensive back, kicked off, and was the team's placekicker and returned kicks. He returned three kicks for touchdowns during the season. He also qualified for the state track meet in the lOO-yard dash, 440-yard relay, broad jump and pole vaught. He played three years on the varsity baseball team and batted .500 during the Jack­ets' perfect season in 1965, and was 16-0 as a pitcher over three seasons. He signed a foot­ball scholarship with Auburn and started on offense and defense on the freshman team in 1965.
