Sam Hunt, 31, was a pretty good quarterback. The Cedartown (Ga.) High School star was named first-team All-State Class AAA by the Georgia Sportswriters Association as a senior. He then spent two years as a backup at Middle Tennessee before transferring to UAB, where he passed for 2,560 yards, 12 TDs and 19 INTs, and rushed for 446 yards and three TDs in 19 career games for the Blazers. The 6’3”, 215-pound country crooner signed with MCA Nashville in 2014 and has since had three platinum singles — “Leave the Night On,” “Take Your Time” and “House Party” — while also writing songs for Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban and Reba McEntire.
