Tucker Hurst has become a player to be feared by from his opponents. He stands 6’3″ and weighs 205 with extraordinary athletic ability .  Hurst is very quick off the ball and plays with a mean streak. Tucker has started on the offensive line for the Cubs since he was a freshman. In 2018 he made the move to tight end so the team could get the ball in his hands some.  He could have a future at the next level at the position. If he could put on a little more weight on you could see him play on defense in college. I sat down with senior Tucker Hurst from Humboldt this week to find a little bit more about him.
