Future looks bright!
Aw, I was hoping they'd play James River or LC Bird so I wouldn't have to go as far to catch a game. Might still have to try to make it to one, though.
Actually, Hunter wasn't the first guy from Varina. Jimmy Trusty, played for VCU in 1976. Only played 1 year. Some things happened to cut his career short. Also Caucasian.Hunter Hoggatt was Rams' first recruit from Varina, in late 90's, and if I'm not mistaken, the only White local high school recruit since Reed Garrett out of Hermitage in '69 and Rhea Saltz out of Benedictine in about '74. Garrett had led the area in scoring as a Hermitage senior. Rhea was a wonderful athlete and a state 400-meter champ but saw little action and dropped out after one season. Hoggatt left VCU and enjoyed a fairly solid career at Longwood, along with U.Va. transfer Colin Ducharme.
