Physical is the name of the game for Huber

Tight ends are tricky prospects to evaluate. They do so much in a game, from catching passes to blocking, that it can be hard to figure out how they translate into moving on to the next level. Cisco TE Coty Huber (6-5.5, 255) is a player who's an imposing specimen that hasn't put up the numbers necessary to generate a lot of buzz, but make no mistake he's a physical presence at tight end.

"It's tough because they don't really look to throw it to me very much," Huber told recently. "I only have three catches for 100 yards, but I do more than run routes and stuff. They ask me to block for the running game and also to help pass-protect in some situations so I'm on the field all the time, but I'm just not putting up numbers."

Huber prepped at Roosevelt High School in San Antonio, but figured out early on he wouldn't have the grades to warrant a D-1 scholarship offer.

"Cisco was the best fit for me," Huber recalled. "It's close to home and I liked the coaches and the players a lot when I met them. It's worked out well for me."

Last year as a freshman, Huber was named 2nd Team All-Southwest Conference and this year he's on pace to do the same.

"I really worked on my strength and footwork this past summer," Huber said. "I knew that I needed to get stronger and I'm still working on that aspect so that helped my blocking which is another area that I wanted to get better at."

So far, Mississippi is the one D-1 school to call him and they've been pretty adamant about letting Huber know how much they like him.

"They call me every week which is really cool," Huber said. "They haven't offered me, but they said they like me a lot and what I can do out on the field. They are definitely a school I'm going to be looking at."

Huber has a chance to finish his two-year degree in December, but said he expects to be done in March at the latest and will have three to play two wherever he ends up.

This weekend Huber and his Cisco teammates play Navarro at home.
