With Liberty's annual Commencement set for Saturday, Liberty Athletics recently had a chance to visit with some of its graduating seniors, including football's Miles Hunter.

More than 19,500 degrees will be presented to Liberty graduates on Saturday during the university's annual Commencement ceremonies. Hunter will be among the 100 plus student-athletes who will receive their degrees.

During Liberty Athletics annual Cord Ceremony last week, LFSN reporter Nick Pierce had a chance to talk with Hunter about his experience as a Liberty student-athlete.

During his time at Liberty, Hunter completed his undergraduate degree in psychology with a focus in counseling and human development. The native of Camden, Del., is currently working on his Master of Arts in Teaching (Secondary) degree.

The linebacker finished his career with 48 games played, tallying 43 career tackles (24 solo, 19 assisted). During his senior year, Hunter played in all 11 games, finishing the season with a career-best 15 tackles, including 2.0 tackles for a loss and a quarterback hurry.

The best performance of his senior year came against No. 7 Montana where he finished with a season-best three tackles, including a three-yard sack. His effort helped the Flames record a 31-21 victory over the Grizzlies in front of a Williams Stadium record 22,551 fans.

Hunter was a part of three Big South championship teams (2012, 2013 and 2014), including the 2014 season that saw the Flames make their first-ever NCAA FCS Playoff appearance.
