Alta Football’s, Davian Leota-Hunkin has been playing with a partial torn ACL since the third game of the season against Hillcrest. The defensive end starter was out for only three weeks, but the injury was still a problem even though it did not require surgery. “The injury has slowed him down,” said Coach Alema Te’o. “It looks as if he has tweaked it again against Provo.” After the game against Provo on October 9, 2015, Te’o tried to use Leota-Hunkin less so that Davian would have some more time to recover and be ready for the playoffs. The team misses Leota-Hunkin on the field, especially his brothers on the team who say that they are not complete without him, but unfortunately, Davian has reinjured his knee while playing in the first round of state against Kearns High School and the Hawks will have to finish the season with Leota-Hunkin. “Coach and my dad want me to get the surgery, but I don’t really want to,” said Leota-Hunkin. “We’ll see if I can get by without it, but I’m for sure out for the season.” Leota-Hunkin hopes to make a full recovery by next season so he has a shot for getting recruiting and getting a scholarship to play football at the college level.
