Countdown to kickoff: #99 Omar Hunter

#99 Player/Hometown/High School: Omar Hunter Buford (Ga.) Buford

Others who wore the number: Lutrell Alford (2004-07), Howard Lingard (2003), Ian Scott (2001-02), Buck Gurley (1997-2000), McDonald Ferguson (1992-96), Tim Paulk (1988-91), Henry Brown (1984-87), Roy Harris (1981-83), John Whittaker (1980), John Spinks (1977), Sammy Green (1973-75)
