JOHANNESBURG, Mich. — Wednesday afternoon, Johannesburg-Lewiston’s Sheldon Huff put pen to paper. He signed his National Letter of Intent to play football at Northwood University. Huff will look to bring his talents at linebacker for the Timberwolves.
It’s safe to say Huff had a wild 2020 season for the Cardinals. There were a lot of positives in Huff’s final season, but there was one big obstacle he had to overcome. Back on Sept. 18, Huff suffered a leg injury in a week one game against Mancelona. He may have not been 100% healthy, but he still managed to finish out the season on a high note.
Even though the Cardinals were one game short from punching their ticket to Ford Field, they had one of its best seasons in program history. He helped the Cardinals capture a conference title, a district title, and a regional title. Huff was a huge asset for the Cardinals on both sides of the ball. On offense, he rushed for 1,370 yards with 16 touchdowns.
However, it was his physicality on defense that earned him a spot on Michigan’s all-state defensive team in Division 8. This season, he finished with 133 total tackles, two interceptions, one sack, and a fumble recovery.
In the classroom, Huff plans on studying Sports Management.
