James Scott Hunter (born November 19, 1947) is a former professional American football quarterback in the National Football League. He played professionally for the Green Bay Packers, the Buffalo Bills, the Atlanta Falcons, and the Detroit Lions.


Hunter was born in Mobile, Alabama and graduated from Vigor High School in Prichard, Alabama.[1] He played college football at the University of Alabama,[2] where he set numerous passing records under coach Bear Bryant before the Crimson Tide switched to the Wishbone in 1971.

Hunter was drafted in the 6th round (140th overall) of the 1971 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers.[3] He was chosen by the Packers because of his similarities in pedigree with the aging Green Bay legend Bart Starr. Hunter played most of the 1972 season, leading the Packers to their last divisional title until the Brett Favre era. Hunter played for eight seasons in the NFL.[4]
