Norman's Dasani Hunt: Driven Athlete of the Month – Presented by Landers Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Norman

A member of the Norman High School volleyball team, 17 year-old Dasani Hunt plays as an outside hitter and defensive specialist. Being a DS allows Hunt to play any position for the Tigers; she can play either the front or backline, while also being a substitute.

She has played volleyball for almost half of her life, picking up the sport when she was only nine years old. She began the sport after being influenced by watching her mother teach her older sister how to play, as her mother has a history in the sport as well.

When asked who her biggest inspiration and supporter is in volleyball, she responded with both her mother and former coach.

“My number one influencer would have to be my mother for teaching me the ins and out of volleyball and life,” Hunt said. “My number two would be Carlos Rosado, my old club volleyball coach who showed me my true potential.”

Hunt is extremely thankful and humbled for all of the blessings that volleyball and her school has brought her. She received a National Youth Leadership Invitation for Sports Medicine due to her leadership qualities that do not go unnoticed by her teachers.

“…Not everyone gets to experience this opportunity that I am given and I make sure I am grateful for whatever comes my way and to be appreciative,” said Hunt.

While striving to be as successful as she can in volleyball, she has also worked hard in her academics. She makes sure her grades are high so she can compete for the Tigers, as well as wanting her grades to get her into college, not just her athletic achievements.

Her plans after graduating high school include playing volleyball at the collegiate level where she wants to major in Sports Management, as he currently serves as a basketball manager for Norman High School in her spare time.
