Newkirk’s Hunter Morgan – FFA Spotlight Presented by Oklahoma AgCredit

By Braxton Scott

Newkirk High School’s Hunter Morgan is a starter for the football team at wide receiver and outside linebacker. One of Hunter’s favorite things about playing football is the bonds and friendships he creates with his fellow teammates that will never be broken or torn apart.

“I like the camaraderie and friendship. It’s like having a team full of brothers. We’ve got each others backs.”

Hunter is a junior at Newkirk High School and is looking forward for the upcoming football season with the Tigers. He will be going into his fourth year of FFA.

“My mom got me started. She grew up in 4-H and FFA showing livestock,” he says.

As a young kid he would show livestock like his mom taught him and has influenced him to keep on that tradition of showing livestock and being apart of FFA. To this day, Hunter shows cattle and also shows swine.

Obviously, football showing livestock are two of Hunters favorite activities, but he has many other interests.

“I love going to livestock shows, shooting sports, commercial cattle grading and going on FFA trips,” said Morgan.

Most of the events for FFA occur after football season for Hunter so he gets to focus fully on football then on FFA.

“Luckily most of the FFA activities that I like to participate in occur after football season so I am able to be dedicated to football.”

The future for Hunter Morgan is very promising as he works towards becoming Game Warden or a Welder.
