UL offensive tackle Robert Hunt (50), right, has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

UL redshirt senior offensive lineman Robert Hunt has been invited to participate in the 2020 Reese’s Senior Bowl, the Senior Bowl Committee announced Tuesday afternoon.

Hunt is the first Ragin’ Cajun to be invited to the annual postseason all-star game since 2017. 

A native of Burkeville, Texas, Hunt was recognized by Pro Football Focus as a Midseason second-team All-America candidate. Hunt, along with the rest of the offensive line, was also one of 24 selections to the Joe Moore Award Midseason Honor Roll, which recognizes the top offensive line in the nation.

Through eight games this year, the Cajuns rank third in the nation in rushing yards per game (288.0) and 13th in the nation in total offense (491.1).

With the help of Hunt at right tackle, UL running backs Raymond Calais, Elijah Mitchell and Trey Ragas have 1,850 of the team’s 2,304 total yards and 23 of the team’s 29 rushing touchdowns.
