Photo: David Ortiz Requested That Torii Hunter's Son Take His Locker At Fenway Park Saturday

Notre Dame is taking on Boston College at Fenway Park this Saturday, and the Fighting Irish, as the home team, will get to use the Boston Red Sox locker room for the contest. But one member of the squad - junior wide receiver Torii Hunter Jr. - will be getting even further special treatment. By request, Hunter will get to use star slugger David Ortiz's locker. Ortiz, who played with the Fighting Irish wideout's father in Minnesota for six seasons, made sure of it.

Hunter Jr. has 21 catches for 267 yards and two scores this year. You can bet he'll be gunning for a career day to honor Ortiz.
