Breakfast: Akeem Hunt loves to dance

Posted Nov 15, 2016

Akeem Hunt is always dancing, whether it's in the locker room, on the practice field, or at home with his dog Yuki.

Akeem Hunt is always dancing, whether it's in the locker room, on the practice field, or at home with his dog Yuki.

Last week, the second-year running back danced his way onto the active roster and made big plays in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

“I thought he gave us a spark and that’s what we were looking for,” head coach Bill O’Brien said. “I thought he had earned the right to be on the 53-man roster through his play on the look team, the scout team and on the practice squad. I thought that he came in there and did a nice job for us.

Hunt averaged 6.5 yards per carry, rushing for 52 yards on eight carries in the win. Not to mention, he had a 34-yard run that didn’t even count. After being signed off the practice squad to the active roster last November, Akeem began the first half of the 2016 season waiting for another opportunity to play.

But he never stopped working, or dancing. 



“Absolutely,” O’Brien said. “He brings a lot of energy to the practice field, a lot of guys do. He’s definitely one of those guys that brings a lot of energy and he has a ton of fun playing football, whether it’s out on the practice field or playing in games.”

Here’s a look at some of Hunt’s dance skills.

I just be having fun !  ANIMALS
