Stan Hunter Print E-mail
One of the top receiving targets of Brian McClure, Stan Hunter was part of two MAC Championship teams, and left Bowling Green with a number of school records. His career totals of 176 catches, 2,679 yards and 21 touchdowns all established Bowling Green records. The catch total was 38 more than the previous mark held by Mark Dowdell, and was the standard until Mark Szlachcic broke it in 1992. The career yardage and touchdown records stood a little longer, until they were broken by the Redd brothers. Ronnie Redd set a new career touchdown mark in 1994 (as well as topping Hunter's record of 37 straight games with a reception), and his brother Robert set a new career yardage record in 2002.

A second team All-MAC performer in 1983, Hunter set another school record with 1,107 yards receiving that year, a record that stood for 20 years until Cole Magner eclipsed it in 2003. It was the first time a Falcon receiver had ever surpassed the 1,000-yard mark. His 90-yard touchdown catch from McClure against Central Michigan on October 29 was the second longest in school history at the time. Six of his ten career 100-yard games came during his sophomore season.

Hunter received first team All-MAC honors the next two years, leading the team with 55 catches as a senior, helping lead the Falcons to an 11-0 record in the regular season and their second California Bowl berth in four years.

He was inducted to the BG Athletic Hall of Fame in 1992.
