Huffman's High Hopes - Aug 26, 2012

Damon
Huffman
The Newcastle Eagles new point guard Damon Huffman (186-G-85) has a real challenge on his hands to come in and run a team that won all four domestic trophies last season in an amazing clean swoop.

However speaking with Eurobasket he appears to be fully up to that challenge and is well aware of the expectations on himself and his team. His level-headed and educated attitude seems to be a perfect fit for The Eagles.

How excited are you about coming to Newcastle and playing for The Eagles?

I think that the opportunity to play basketball in Newcastle for an organization like the Eagles is going to be a great experience. That being said, I am very excited to get started.

What attracted you to them?

Newcastle offers an organization of success and an opportunity to play against new competition, in a new country and a new league. All of which are very exciting as a basketball player and for myself.

Did coming to England play a part in your decision?

This will be my first time in England and the UK but I always find new places and cultures fascinating so I will definitely be looking forward to it.

The Eagles won all four domestic trophies last season, does that make it a daunting prospect joining such a successful organisation?

I believe that when you join a club and an organization that is as successful as Newcastle it helps bring out the best qualities in yourself. I personally have very high expectations and I think I will help compliment the team on its new journey this upcoming season.

What do you think you can bring to the Club on and off the court?

As a player I consider myself to be a tough hard-nosed, team-first guard. I am looking forward to playing with the team because my style is very complimentary. In the end I care about winning and the team, and I think of myself as someone who will do what it takes to do those things.

Being off the court, to me, is being a representative and extension of the club. I believe that being a positive role model is extremely important to the next generation of basketball players. Being involved in the community and adapting to the local culture are also very important and interesting.

What goals are you setting yourself for the season?

I think as a player you always have to have the highest personal goals, otherwise you are selling yourself short. Winning games is my priority and if you do that, then all the personal goals you set will fall into place.

Do you think the BBL matches up with the experience you've had in Belgium and Holland?

I cant yet compare the similarities, but I am looking forward to playing in the BBL.

What was it like playing in Belgium and Holland?

Belgium and Holland were very physical and defense orientated leagues. They both had quality teams with quality players. Playing there was great for experience, both for international competition and styles of play.

What was your impression of The Eagles in the Basketball Days Tournament last December?

When we played the Eagles, I remember smart, hard nosed, big shot making basketball. Even though my team came away with the win, the Eagles were tough competition.

Zwolle won the tournament and you won the MVP award, what was that like?

Winning the tournament and the MVP was a great experience and it was a lot of fun. Playing against teams outside your league is always good for perspective on where your team stands. It was also important for our team because we could take some of that confidence into league play.

Brown University? A very famous and important academic University in America, what was it like to attend?

Brown University was a one of the best experiences I have ever had in my life. It was challenging, and demanding because of the balance of sports and academics. They hold their academic and athletic expectations very high but allow you to make your own path of success. I attribute a lot of where I am today, to my experience at Brown and I would recommend anyone to attend if they could.

How did the basketball match-up in the Ivy League at Brown?

I believe the Ivy League, is a very underrated basketball conference. There is a lot of history, with Penn and Princeton, but hopefully schools like Brown, Harvard, and Cornell can continue to make a name for themselves against the bigger names in the NCAA.

You graduated from Brown with an excellent academic record, how do you think that will help you in the future and/or in your basketball career?

I think the ability to prepare and understand workloads is important in basketball. Over the course of a nine-month season you need to be able to manage your body, practice and game preparation. Hopefully my experience from Brown will continue to help me continually prepare for these things as well as whatever life brings after basketball.

Anything else you'd like to add?

See all of you in Newcastle soon!

It certainly appears from speaking with Huffman that he is aware of what is expected of him and he appears to have the confidence, commitment and belief that he can deliver what is required.
