Matt showcases the rise of Eric Hunter from Hampton, Virginia from the same high school as Tyrod Taylor and Ronald Curry but before Hampton, Virginia produced the likes of Allen Iverson there was Eric Hunter.
Eric was a star in Hampton, Virginia and then went on to The University of Purdue. At The University of Purdue Eric shined as a freshmen and won Big 10 Freshmen of the year. He started for 4 years at Purdue. A rape allegation that was later dropped tainted his time at Purdue. He seemed destined to play in the NFL and won The Senior Bowl MVP. However, he never made the NFL. After a short stint in the Canadian Football league Eric returned to Hampton, where drugs, incarnation, and mental health derailed his life. At age 46, he was murdered. Matt Griffin tells his story in a compelling documentary which not only highlights football and athletics but shines a light on the importance of taking care of mental health. It’s a must watch and must spread story.
