-Played D1 tennis in college with a scholarship and degree from SMU in Dallas, TX. While there, Hunter and his twin brother Yates would go on to become the winningest doubles team in school history, along with a career high ranking of 15 in the country in doubles and 30 in singlesAfter graduating, he devoted 4 full years to his craft on the Tennis Pro Tour in doubles as he would go on to beat the top players in the world with a combined 14 Professional titles, including 13 ITF Futures and 1 ATP Challenger title with wins over Alexander Zverev and Felix Auger-Aliassime to name a few. One of his favorite memories while on tour was getting a chance to practice with the one and only Roger Federer.

Since making the switch Hunter has fought his way to the top at one point becoming the 2nd best pickleball player in the world in DUPR Singles rankings. Finished 4th in singles 2 years in a row at nationals and has been drafted premier the last 2 seasons in MLP with the Atlanta Bouncers and currently drafted to the LA Mad Drops.
