Here are useful Reggie-related links.
Thanks to RWilco for the Riderfans link.
Obscure Fact: Reggie's mum is called Regina (the hometown of the Riders). What a coincidence!
Reggie's brother Aaron
The article Linebacker Hunt filling in the holes also mentions Reggie's younger brother Aaron, who youcan read about here. Aaron, aside from driving Reggie's car these days, is going to beat current Denver Bronco Montae Reagor's sack record in college. I think Aaron will get drafted into the NFL next year. Aaron wears #9 at Texas Tech.
Also note Reggie was 25 on 14 October 2002.

"I didn't want to lose,''
Darrell Davis. Regina Leader-Post. Saturday, November 2, 2002
"I didn't want to lose,'' said Roughriders linebacker Reggie Hunt. "I wanted to win. We all want to win and take care of business.
"We're playing our guts out here. We're going to score some points.''
speaking after the final game of the regular season, a disappointing 283 loss to the BC Lions.
Sorry, Reggie Hunt.

REGINA -- Sorry, Reggie Hunt. You're not eligible to win the outstanding rookie award, according to the criteria being distributed by the CFL. Hunt played 10 games for the Scotland Claymores of NFL Europe; being on a professional team's roster precludes him from being selected as the Saskatchewan Roughriders' nominee.
Hunt recently admitted that he was hoping to win the award. When told he wasn't eligible, Hunt's smile faded and he said, with a tinge of disappointment, "Whatever.''
Hunt is truly making an impression during his first CFL season. He has started all 16 games at weak-side linebacker, leads the team with 79 defensive tackles and has added 14 special-teams tackles.
It might not be fair, but the rule also eliminates from consideration first-year Roughriders tailback Sedrick Shaw and Edmonton Eskimos tailback John Avery and quarterback Ricky Ray, all of whom have played in other professional leagues. The Football Reporters of Canada set the guidelines and conduct the balloting, although there have been instances where the CFL has altered the rules, so it's unfortunate that we were mistakenly touting Hunt for the award.

REGGIE HUNT - OUTSTANDING DEFENSIVE PLAYER
Also, Reggie is heading into his option year so he should get another crack at the NFL. The Indianapolis Colts and at least one other team have sent scouts to see him in Canada. If the NFL doesn't work out then he will be in Roughrider green next year in the 2nd year of his contract. (24 Oct 2002)
STATS BOOTH FOR 2002 CFL SEASON
Games: 2 (2 started); Tackles 9 (game high 6). Pass Knocked Down: 1. Tackles for Loss: 1 (for 2 yds).
IN PRESEASON the Riders lost their first preseason game 22-6 but Reggie had a good game with a team-high 6 tackles. He had 3 more tackles (and finished preseason as the team's leading tackler) in a 27-24 win over Edmonton.
Reggie is currently one of the leading tacklers in the league during the regular season, with 42. He leads in the Roughriders in Special Teams tackles with 10.
He dropped his one chance of an INT this season against Toronto, which if he had held on could have gone for a TD.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders are con artists.
Confidence and conditioning -- utilizing both has helped the Roughriders win three of their first four CFL games, put them into a first-place tie in the Western Division and made them eager for Thursday's road game against the winless Calgary Stampeders.
"I'm proud of two things,'' outside linebacker Reggie Hunt, who led the Roughriders with six defensive tackles Friday in their 45-11 victory over the visiting Edmonton Eskimos, said following the team's practice Sunday.
"I'm proud that we kept running to the ball and that we're so well-conditioned. (The Eskimos) were getting tired. I think it was obvious they were tired in the fourth quarter. We weren't.'' READ MORE
Right: Reggie sticks a Calgary Stampeder running back in his second CFL regular-season game, from a Moose Jaw newspaper. Bigger picture from the Regina Leader-Post.

By the way, if you see Reggie at a game do mention you saw the site. He'd get a real kick out of that. I'll put up any more photos I can find of Reggie in Saskatchewan.
2002 Update: I heard from London Dunlap that Reggie might have had a try out with the Buffalo Bills. He also might be going to play in Canada? His agent's site (Sportswest Football) list him as being with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL. Reggie then e-mailed me to say he is definitely going to be playing for the Roughriders.
