After high school, Hunter attended Texas Christian University, where he graduated with a B.S. in Sports Broadcasting and a minor in Journalism. During his time at TCU, Hunter spent time both covering the Horned Frogs, as well as working behind the scenes, working production of live sporting events.

After graduating from TCU, he moved back to New Braunfels to work as the Sports Information Director for San Antonio Christian High School's football program.
