(December 6, 2012) -- Midway receiver Hunter Jarmon has been making game winning, game changing, and plays you'd only expect to find in a video game.
"I really don't think about it, it just kind of happens," said Jarmon. "I really take credit for baseball because baseball gives me a lot of hand-eye coordination, so it just kind of comes natural when it happens. I don't realize until after it happens, whoa, I really did that."
His quarterback thinks he's the best receiver in the state.
"He's got the greatest hands that I've ever seen and he can catch anything and go up, said Midway quarterback Kramer Robertson. "He doesn't have to be open to make a catch, I can trust him when it's one-on-one just to throw it up and for him to go get it."
"Hunter Jarmon is one of the best receivers in the state of Texas because he makes plays," said Midway head coach Terry Gambill. "I mean, I would to see as many receivers that have made as many big time plays as Hunter has."
Jarmon has also made plays on the baseball diamond. While he's narrowed his college scholarship offers down to five schools for football (Oregon St., Washington St., Kansas, Minnesota, and Illinois) being able to play baseball is still a factor.
"I've talked to all the colleges I'm interested in and they will let me play baseball and football," said Jarmon. "I want to try it out my Freshman year and see how it goes. If it doesn't work out, if it's too much for me then I'll probably going to rely on football since I'm going on a football scholarship."
"I think he should play both as long as he can," said Robertson. "We've grown up together, since we were eight years-old we've played baseball and football together in the back yard so I think there's a chemistry between us that nobody else in the state has. That's coming from throwing in the backyard every day and we carry it over now to when we're Seniors in high school and it's been really fun for us."
Midway will face Cedar Hill in a state quarterfinal game Saturday at 2:00 pm in Midlothian.
