Shaq Huff Has The Stuff

The Eagles of Eastside (GA) High School in Covington were probably destined to play an AAA opening round game with Westside of Macon. The 41-13 Eastside win bodes well as they prepare for their second round game at Cairo. There's plenty of talent on the Covington, GA club including 6-1, 292 pound junior defensive tackle Shaq Huff.

Shaquille Huff visited Georgia Tech this past weekend for the Miami game. It was a special experience for him. "That was my first college or pro game that I've attended and I really liked it."

Shaq attended the game with an old friend. I went to the game with Devonte "Tre" Sorrells from Alcovy High School in Covington, Georgia. Huff and Sorrells grew up together.

While he was at the game Huff had a chance to speak with one of the Tech coaches. "I talked with linebacker coach Joe Speed," said Huff. "He was nice and I really liked the atmosphere there." Huff said Speed will be keeping in touch with him.

Huff doesn't have any other visits planned but does have other schools showing interest in him. "Georgia is showing interest in me and I'm getting a lot of letters from Minnesota and Middle Tennessee."

Looking ahead Huff's only plans right now includes a possible trip to a football camp in Florida this summer. "Nothing is for certain right now."

Huff started his high school career as a 260 pound freshman at Eastside and has since packed on a lot of power. In the process he's picked up a nickname that is appropriate. "The coaches all call me "Nasty". College coaches will be calling for the services of Shaquille Huff. Top Stories
