Hunter Jumper

Hunter grew up in Dallas, Texas, playing soccer his whole life. In 2008, he committed to the University of Virginia where he played on the men’s varsity team while studying psychology and business. In 2009, Hunter won the NCAA National Championship with Virginia, and after a few years, he left UVA to play professional soccer for the Chicago Fire.

Unfortunately, Hunter was diagnosed with ARVD his third year with the Fire, and had to have heart surgery, which ended his soccer career. Hunter then went back to the University of Virginia to finish his undergrad while also working as the Assistant Coach for the men’s varsity team. This team went on to win UVA’s second National Championship in the last twenty-years.

While working with the Men’s team, Hunter found out about Daily Fantasy Sports. After losing the first six-weeks, he committed to learning the ins and outs of NBA DFS. Similar to soccer and coaching, Hunter understood that there’s an advantage using tactics, strategy, and analytics to find an edge, and within the next nine months, he profited over $180,000.

In 2015, Hunter earned his next degree in business at the University of Virginia while playing DFS as his main source of income and working as a lead writer for Rotogrinders NBA content. In 2017, Hunter decided to transition to work in finance for the next year and a half. Unsatisfied with the inability to be connected to sports, Hunter left the world of finance to get his Masters degree in Real Estate and Finance at Pepperdine University, which allowed him to continue playing DFS full time.

After finishing his Masters degree at Pepperdine, Hunter connected with Jeff Collins to work as the head NBA sportswriter for Numberball.

When playing DFS full time, Hunter amassed multiple six-figure wins in a variety of sports; though, NBA remains his focus and passion.

Today, Hunter and his family happily reside on the East Coast while maintaining roots in Santa Barbara, CA. While Hunter still plays DFS on a regular basis, his primary goal and focus is to help others find fantasy and financial success in the sports they love.
