Ray Hunt (born 6 March 1918) was a full back who played an attacking style.

Hunt played 206 games for Glenelg (then a club record) and kicked 34 goals for both the Bays and the West Adelaide-Glenelg war time combination. He was Glenelg's best and fairest award recipient in 1939 and 1946, and was runner-up to Bob Hank of West Torrens in the 1946 Magarey Medal. He represented South Australia 8 times.
