When Drew Hunniford committed to play baseball at St. Xavier and his older brother, Justin, decided to transfer from North Central College to St. Xavier to play football, the brothers began dreaming about having a chance to be teammates.

Justin Hunniford also played baseball at Providence, where both brothers graduated from. While he planned to devote all his energy to playing quarterback for the Cougars, he knew he would have one spring open after completing his senior season on the gridiron.
