Reggie Hunt (born October 14, 1978 in Denison, Texas) is a retired former professional gridiron football linebacker. He most recently played for the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League. He was signed by the Scottish Claymores as a street free agent in 2001. He played college football for the TCU Horned Frogs.
Following high school graduation, Hunt attended Texas Christian University. As a senior, he won All-WAC honors at both safety and kick returner positions, and set the Horned Frogs single season kick return average record (34.1 yards). He finished his career with three interceptions, 271 tackles, and seven forced fumbles.
Hunt was signed as a free agent by Saskatchewan on May 17, 2002. His job was to replace departed linebacker George White (who had signed as a free agent with the Calgary Stampeders). He quickly solidified himself as a force in the Canadian Football League and was named a CFL All-Star in 2003, as well as a two-time CFL Western Division All-Star in 2004 and 2006. Hunt won a Grey Cup championship with the Roughriders in 2007.
On February 19, 2008, it was reported that he had signed with the Montreal Alouettes. Hunt dressed and played in 14 games with the Alouettes as well as the East Final and the 96th Grey Cup loss. After the Alouettes decided to start non-import Shea Emry at middle linebacker, he was released on June 25, 2009.
Hunt is the older brother of Aaron Hunt, a defensive lineman for the CFL's BC Lions. Hunt officially announced his retirement on October 26, 2011 by signing a one-day contract with the Saskatchewan Roughriders so he could retire as a Roughrider.
