No. 7 CB – Kenyar Hurt

Q: When did you start playing football?

I started playing football around middle school, probably 7th or 8th grade.

Q: Do you play any sports other than football?

Other than football I compete in track where I run the 4 x 800 relay.

Q: What is one of the biggest challenged you’ve faced playing football, and how did you overcome that?

At first, coming into football a little later than others, it was harder to get used to my position. At first I didn’t want to be out there, but now I understand what I am doing and enjoy playing.

Q: What is your favorite part about your position?

I enjoy getting to hit players, and getting to defend receivers from getting the ball.

Q: Who do you look up to on the football field at you position and why?

I look up to Emmanuel Forbes from Mississippi State. He is a lockdown cornerback that has great hands as well. I think he will be able to make a big impact at the next level.

Q: Do you have any colleges or universities you are interested in visiting or attending?

Right now, I have my eyes on a few schools closer to home such as Southern Mississippi, Arkansas State, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, etc.

Q: What strengths do you believe you have, that makes you a impact athlete?

My size and speed allow me to stay with receivers on every down. I am good at reading the quarterback which has allowed me to get a good amount of interceptions so far.

Q: How would your teammates describe you?

My teammates would say I am a hard worker, dedicated to getting better every day.

Q: What are you looking forward to this upcoming season, any specific goals for you?

I want more interceptions than I had last season. I think personally I can get that goal by staying dedicated to my work and my team.
