Spotlight: Gage Huffman
The Tyler Star News has selected Silver Knights Baseball star Gage Huffman as the Spotlight Athlete for March 18, 2020. Huffman is a natural athlete who shines in three sports, Football, Basketball and his favorite Baseball. From past experience this looks to be a season to watch for Knights fans, as Huffman will spend a great deal of time on the mound for coach Robbie Jones.
Huffman definitely has a strong arm and has been known to peg an out at home plate from his center field position. He will bring the heat for the Knights this season in the range of 88-92 MPH. He also tosses a mean change-up and his curve will keep you away from the plate.
Several schools have been courting him since his sophomore season and this year you can expect visitors from far and near. At the plate he can go long distance at any time, and has shown the ability to get timely hits in when runners are on base.
We look for him to lead the Silver Knights in several categories this season as he ends his four year career with Tyler Consolidated. When his high school career is over, his goal is to play at the next level. We believe he has the skill, attitude and work ethic to succeed wherever he goes, and we at the Tyler Star News wish him the best.
