UW This Season: After three seasons at cornerback, Huff will see time at free safety in the fall of 2013. He will be a valuable member of the secondary with his versatility.
2012: Huff finished fifth on the team with 57 tackles, and had 1.5 tackles for loss for two yards. He was second on the team with seven pass breakups, and he was part of three turnovers - one fumble recovery and two forced fumbles. His forced fumble at the UW 1 yard line against UNLV saved a touchdown in the third quarter, in a game that Wyoming went on to win 28-23. He posted a career-high 10 tackles versus Idaho. He accounted for one of Wyoming's two blocked kicks over the season.
2011: Huff did an outstanding job in his first year as a full-time starter at corner. He was a ball hawk, accounting for both of Wyoming's two defensive scores this season on fumble returns of 8 and 48 yards. His 8-yard fumble return for TD was a turning point in the Cowboys' close win over Bowling Green, and he helped seal the Wyoming win at Air Force with a 48-yard fumble return TD with just 25 seconds left in the game. He added three interceptions, including a touchdown-saving pick in the endzone versus CSU in the last game of the year, to lead the Cowboys in total turnovers with six. His three fumble recoveries ranked him No. 2 in the Mountain West and No. 27 in the nation, and his three interceptions ranked No. 4 in the MW and No. 90 in the NCAA. He was critical in run support as well, accounting for 47 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss and two pass breakups.
2010: Huff appeared as a nickel back in the secondary, and played on special teams. He appeared in all 12 games during his freshman season with the Cowboys. He finished with 18 tackles, one interception and one pass breakup. Huff's top performance came at UNLV when he recorded five tackles. He posted an interception and pass breakup to go with two tackles against Utah.
High School: Huff was named All-Northeast Texas and all-district his senior season at Liberty-Eylau High School in Texarkana, Texas. He also achieved all-district honors as a junior, and was named all-state in track and field as a sprinter and high jumper his junior season. Huff intercepted three passes, was credited with 85 tackles, forced three fumbles, recovered one fumble and blocked one punt his senior season. His junior year, he intercepted two passes, made 53 tackles, forced one fumble and blocked two field goals. He was voted a team captain in football both his junior and senior seasons. He played for head coach Pat Brady.
Personal: Born April 6, 1992, Huff's aunt and uncle are Rhonda and Richard Carson. He was also recruited by Baylor, Missouri and New Mexico. He is pursuing a degree in communications at UW.
