Former Notre Dame WR Torii Hunter, Jr., now following in father’s footsteps with Burlington Bees

Torii Hunter, Jr. had a plan at a young age.

That was to be a professional athlete.

As one of the top football recruits in the country, the star wide receiver out of Prosper High in Texas could go to school for just about any of the elite programs out there.

Hunter chose Notre Dame, and the highlight reel followed.

"I thought that if I had a pretty good senior year that I would try to come out and try to do the whole draft process," Hunter said Monday afternoon.

Then September 4, 2016 happened.

"I still have memory loss from that moment," Hunter reminisced on the game that ended his football career.

A hit in the end zone against Texas in Notre Dame’s opener shifted Hunter’s focus strictly to baseball, a sport he had a little familiarity with.
