Orange Panther of the Week: Hank Nunnery

Updated: September 23, 2022

This week’s Orange Panther of the Week is sophomore quarterback Hank Nunnery. On September 9, Nunnery threw for five touchdowns as the Panthers defeated Granville Central 45-0 in Stem. Nunnery is believed to be the first Orange quarterback ever to throw for five touchdowns in one half. Nunnery added a career-high 196 yards as the Panthers won its first game under head coach DeVante’ Pettiford. When Nunnery was a middle school student at Gravelly Hill, he didn’t know he would be the starting quarterback by his sophomore year at Orange High. Nunnery started playing football in Mebane when he was in fourth grade. He grew up as a linebacker at Gravelly Hill, then asked Coach Pettiford if he could adjust to quarterback. He has started Orange’s last three games. He threw touchdown passes against Chapel Hill and Burlington Cummings. Coming up tonight, Nunnery and the Panthers will travel to Burlington to face Walter Williams to kick off the second half of the season.
