Performance and Passion: The Process of Coaching an Offensive Line

| July 14, 2014

Christian-Hunnicutt-LHS-OLineLOWNDES COUNTY, GA – When talking to Christian Hunnicutt, offensive line coach at Lowndes County High School, two things become immediately apparent: his passion for football, and his love for the players. He prides himself in putting in the extra time and energy to create a successful environment for his student-athletes. And, he wants to see every player maximize his potential both on the field and throughout his life.

Though he did not play football in college, Hunnicutt says he “caught the bug” for coaching while studying education at the University of Georgia. He set out to study political science at UGA, but a roommate, Scott Wilkins, who currently serves as the head coach at Cedar Shoals High School in Athens, convinced his classmate to pursue a career in education. He recalled the teachers and coaches who made an impact in his life, and he felt that he was being called to teach. Soon after, he switched majors to education, and took the first steps along that path. According to the Hunnicutt, “There are so many similarities, to me, between really effective classroom teaching, and really effective coaching.”
