In three seasons as Texas A&M's quarterback, Joel Hunt guided the Aggies to 20 wins against only four losses and three ties. He also led A&M to two Southwest Conference titles. He scored 33 points as a sophomore, 63 as a junior, and 128 as a senior. His 128 points in 1927 became a long-standing Southwest Conference record, and his A&M record 30 touchdowns and 224 points stood for nearly 50 years. One of his greatest games was in 1927 when A&M played undefeated Southern Methodist University. Hunt scored three touchdowns, punted for a 40-yard average, and intercepted four passes in leading the Aggies to a 39-13 victory. He was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1958.
