OKC native and Ohio tailback Rickey Hunt Jr. on his record-setting 5 TD day

Rickey Hunt Jr. admits he was disappointed about how his freshman season went at Ohio. The running back from Millwood High School didn’t get nearly as many carries as he’d hoped. But when Ohio lost its top two tailbacks to the transfer portal, Hunt got the opportunity he’d been waiting for — and he took full advantage of it. Hunt talks about his record-setting day in the Myrtle Beach Bowl, what it was like scoring his first collegiate touchdown (then scoring four more) and how his time at Millwood helped prepare him for the opportunity. All that and more on The Jenni Carlson Show.
