The Winfield Generals won their AA rivalry game versus Poca by a convincing score 57-12. The Generals opened the game scoring on the first five possession and never looked back as they dominated in all facets of the game. One standout player that helped lead the charge to victory was senior quarterback Andrew Huff. Huff accounted for four touchdowns as he led the Generals on the ground and through the air. Huff finished the night passing a perfect 6-6 for 170 yards, and rushed for 112 yards on 10 carries. On the night Huff accounted for 282 total yards of offense and a remarkable 17.6 yards per play he touched the ball. 
When asked about what motivates him Huff said, ”Making it to the playoffs is my goal with this being my final year at Winfield. We believe we have the talent to make a deep run in the playoffs if we can make the push to get there.’’ When Huff was asked about who has inspired him throughout his life he replied, “My father and my older brother Jeremy are two people who have inspired me with athletics and in life. Jeremy unfortunately was diagnosed with cancer his senior year of sports and was unable to play. That really made me realize to not take things for granted and enjoy every moment playing varsity sports at Winfield.”
The Generals are 4-2 and currently ranked 18 in the AA WVSSAC rankings. Winfield has been an offensive juggernaut as they are averaging 42.8 points/game running an aggressive power run that is hard to stop. The offensive line has paved the way for the Generals as they are in close lead for the top rushing attack in the state. The Generals defense has been stingy, as they have only given up an average of 19.5 points per game. As good as the stats look for the Generals, stiffer competition remains. Head Coach Craig Snyder has his team playing well, but will have to replace star running back Nick Vance as he is out for the rest of the season with a season ending ankle injury. Though the Generals are wounded, they are not out of the fight. The Generals plan to build off their big win at Poca as they will be tested against Sissonville at home Friday night
Andrew currently has a 3.6 GPA and is the son of Matt and Mary Huff. Andrew says he plans to play basketball in the winter and is involved in the lunch bunch crew that aids special needs students. Andrew plans to attend Marshall University study criminal justice next fall.
Please look for other local high school athletes to be named in next week’s Male Gamer of the Week Sponsored by Teays Physical Therapy Center, Inc. & The Putnam Herald.
