Huffor begins pro career with BBL's Glasgow Rocks
October 5, 2011
GLASGOW, Scotland - A former Newberry College student-athlete is plying his trade in the world of professional sports, as Danny Huffor has begun the season with the Glasgow Rocks of the British Basketball League.
Huffor played two years at Newberry after transferring from Pasco Hernando JC in Florida. He started in 11 games as a senior, averaging 6.7 points and 2.6 rebounds per game.
“I saw Danny play for the first time this summer in Las Vegas," said Rocks head coach Sterling Davis. "He really did a good job of holding his own against some very talented players at the summer camps. With his ties to Glasgow in his grandparents, we thought this would be a very good fit for both parties. He could potentially be a factor in our plans sooner rather than down the line.”
“So far everything is going well, the team is in its initial phases and we are still trying to get used to one another’s playing styles, but I am sure that will come with practice," Huffor said. "I am excited for the season ahead and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to play for the Glasgow Rocks and I will do everything I can to make it work.”
Huffor, who scored in double digits in six games as a senior for the Wolves, came off the bench for the Rocks in their first game last week against the Newcastle Eagles. For more information on the Rocks, visit http://www.glasgowrocks.co.uk/
