BUNKIE 'BOOT BOMBER'
Panther punter/kicker Mitchell Hukins sends the pigskin sailing. As of Week 9, Hukins was averaging 38.4 yards per punt and had pinned opponents behind their own 20 yard line 15 times. He had made three out of four field goal attempts and nine of 11 extra point kicks.
He’s the one who puts the “foot” in football at Bunkie High School, but Mitchell Hukins is more than just the Panther’s punter/placekicker.
