The Road Less Travelled

Tarheel junior forward Ben Hunter didn't follow most of his football playing schoolmates in Doncaster, England into the professional ranks in Britain when he was given the opportunity, instead he followed his desire to get a university degree -- a quest which first brought him to the University of Rio Grande where he was the top scorer in NAIA soccer. When Tarheel's coach Elmar Bolowich received an unexpected email from the ambitious Englishman wanting to ply his skills in the ACC, it laid the basis for Hunter's transfer which saw him contribute significantly to the Tarheel's season and playoff runs. Hunter scored 7 of the 9 goals UNC netted in the ACC and NCAA tournaments this year.
