STOCKDALE -- Not everyone has a family connection to their university of choice, but for Stockdale’s Hunter Pierdolla, that is exactly the case. The senior linebacker and punter will now play football for Texas Lutheran University in Seguin, the same school his father, uncle, and cousin all suited up for.

Pierdolla had other options available, including schools like the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, the University of Texas at San Antonio, and Texas State University. His decision was made due to the school’s proximity to home, the fact that it is an academically established school, and because the football program is building quickly. The family legacy may have come into play, as well.

Pierdolla, who spent some time under center this past season as the Brahma quarterback, said he led the team to the best of his abilities, but is admittedly most comfortable at linebacker and punter, the two positions at which he will compete for playing time.

In the classroom, science has always been his favorite subject, and Pierdolla said he plans to major in aviation management. He has always found aviation interesting, and is excited about the prospect of working on the business side of things.

But before he gets going in his career, he has a lot of work to do at Texas Lutheran. Pierdolla is looking forward to new experiences, and is excited about meeting new people. He is also quite excited about playing football at the college level.

Pierdolla has set several goals for himself at TLU, with the first being to earn a starting position as soon as possible. He plans to work harder than he has ever worked before, and hopes to eventually earn the title of All-American. He knows it won’t come easy, but most things worth having never do.

“Hunter has a bright future,” said Stockdale Athletic Director and football Head Coach Josh West. “[He] had a great year. Unfortunately he suffered some injuries his senior year or he would have posted some great numbers both offensively and defensively.”

West went on to describe Pierdolla as a good kid on and off of the field, and said that he will be missed.

It’s never easy to replace an experienced starter, but when that athlete is the leader of your offense and defense, it becomes that much more difficult. Pierdolla will leave some big shoes to fill in the Stockdale locker room, but the Brahmas’ loss is the Bulldogs’ gain, and Texas Lutheran University is sure to be better with Pierdolla in uniform.
