Travis Hunter made his return to Colorado football on Friday night and quickly made an impact.
The former Jackson State star is playing in his first game since suffering a lacerated liver last month and he made a big impact in the first quarter of his team’s game against Stanford.
It didn’t take long for Hunter to find his way into the end zone as he caught a pass over the middle from Shedeur Sanders and put his defender in the spin cycle and scampered down the sideline for a 24-yard touchdown catch. It was the first receiving touchdown at Colorado. He caught four touchdown passes during his time at Jackson State — two of them in the Celebration Bowl against North Carolina Central.
After the touchdown, Hunter dropped to his knees in the end zone in a praying gesture. He was hit with a flag for an unsportsmanlike penalty on the celebration. Florida A&M head coach Willie Simmons couldn’t believe the referees flagged Hunter for dropping to his knees.
“Did T. Hunter just get an unsportsmanlike penalty for praying after a TD?” Simmons asked his followers.
Colorado led 23-0 with just under three minutes left in the first half.
