The Longhorns did not need Hayden Huckabee to get a lot of touches last Friday night, they just needed him to make the most of them. Huckabee did just that in Marengo Academy’s 48-13 win over South Choctaw Academy.

The junior only carried the ball four times, tallying 172 yards while turning in touchdown runs of 49, 70 and 41 yards. Huckabee also went 2-of-3 through the air for 104 yards including a 66-yard touchdown pass.

For his efforts, Huckabee earned ESPN 104.9 Coaches Show and West Alabama Watchman Player of the Week honors.

The ESPN 104.9 crew honored Huckabee Tuesday night at Batter Up Sports Grill in Demopolis, interviewing the standout on the air and presenting him with a commemorative T-shirt. Marengo Academy hosts Patrician Thursday night.
