(HERCULANEUM) The Herculaneum Blackcat alumnus tree is proving resourceful after it’s been recently announced that former football star Cody Hunter is the new football head coach.

Hunter is replacing David Cook who stepped down in May after 6 years running the program. Hunter is happy to be returning home after spending a number of years as an assistant coach at DeSoto.

Hunter is diving deeper into the pool of Blackcat alumni to fill out his coaching staff, including Nubby Eberhardt who was a member of the 1995 Class 3-A state runner-up team.

Before the grind begins, coach Hunter has a message for the Herculaneum community.
