If you have been to a Seymour football game this fall, there’s a good chance you’ve seen Hunter Klakamp on the field for a majority of the night.

That’s because he’s a starting running back on offense, starting cornerback on defense, and a kick and punt returner on special teams.

“I like defense better. I like playing corner a lot,” the Owls senior said. “Just being one-on-one with my man, and that’s the only thing I have to worry about is my man, I really like that aspect. Most of the time, we’re just man-to-man. Then, when we’re in a different coverage, zone, you just usually have deep thirds. You’re more of a coverage player than tackling.”

Offensively, Klakamp has mainly been at running back, but he’s also played some slot receiver.
