Reggie in San Diego.
And Reggie in Scotland with the Claymores.
In 2001 my sponsored Scottish Claymore player was San Diego Chargers allocated player Safety Reggie Hunt, his stats for the season are as follows.
2001 Claymores Stats: Season
Total tackles: 34 (game high: 6, week 1) [30 normal/ 4 special teams] Total PD: 7 (game high: 2, weeks 1,4) Total Forced Fumbles: 1 (game high: 1, week 8) Total INT: 2* for no return (game high: 1, weeks 1,4) Total Kick-Off returns: 9 for 171 yds (longest: 38 yds, week 9. Average gain 19 yds) *jointly led team.
2001 Chargers Stats: Preseason
Games: 4 (SF, MIA, STL, ARI). Total tackles: 6. (game high: 4, week 4 (ARI)] Interceptions: 1 for 0 yds (Game 4). Passes Defensed: 1 (Game 4). Kick-Off returns: 4 for 139 yds (longest: 72 yds, week 2 (MIA). Average gain 34.75 yds leads team preseason).
Highlights: Reggie's INT was from a Chris Greisen pass and he caught it at the 20-yd line for no gain (the stats mistakenly say it was a 27 yd INT). Obviously, the 72-yd Kick Return was the spectacular highlight.
Surprise Hero Rescues Chargers
Hunt return sets up victory in overtime; Brees solid in debut

Running backs coach Ollie Wilson turned to Hunt and in all seriousness asked: "Have you ever done this before?"
Hunt was incredulous... more
Reggie played in San Diego's first two preseason games first, a thrilling 25-24 win over the 49ers (a two-point conversion with 30 seconds left winning it for the Chargers). Reggie had 1 tackle and a kick-off return for 25 yards in 4th Quarter action. And then in the 23-20 win over Miami. Reggie set up the game-winning field goal in OT by returning the opening OT kick-off for 72 yards from the 8-yd line to the 20 of Miami. A five-yard face mask penalty was added on to the run. Without the face masking (by Olindo Mare as he ran past?) Reggie would have gotten a touchdown. Fantastic stuff!

I'll have more Reggie stuff up here soon. He was an excellent player and a really great guy. Reggie is currently in training camp with the San Diego Chargers and he has a shot at making their roster or practice squad. Good luck Reggie!
Thanks also to all of Reggie's friends and relatives who have e-mailed me their kind words. Thank you!
