Hunter began his journey in skeleton during the summer of 2017 when a friend of his told him about the USABS combine. Athletes perform a five item test in order to display their explosiveness and athleticism in order to be considered to become a Development Athlete. He passed his combine and started the process of learning how to drive a skeleton sled that fall. He spent a majority of his first seasons training in Lake Placid, New York and Park City, Utah.

This season, 2019-2020, Hunter made his first North American Cup (NAC) team. He competed in 7 races this season; 4 in Lake Placid, New York, and 3 in Park City, Utah. He ended his first NAC season ranked 21st of 39.

Before starting Skeleton, Hunter graduated fromĀ Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania (SRU) in 2015. There he was a part of the Track and Field team. He primarily competed in the 200, 400, 4×100 and 4×400. He still holds the indoor 400 and 4×400 records at SRU today. Check out this article written by Jon Holtz of Slippery Rock University.
