The Northwest Florida Daily News – No Chance: Niceville’s Huff dominating senior season (April 2018)

Head coach Tim Corbin on Huff: “We really like how Chance pitched this past fall. He created some opportunities for himself during his freshman year because of his arm strength and power stuff. But within the last 6 months, Chance has really been able to refine his delivery, harness his pitches and command the mental part of the game. We really like the direction that he is moving in. He has a great personality, positive young man and loves the team environment.”
