STEPHEN HUFF

"B" Team Head Coach

My name is Stephen Huff and I was born and raised in Sierra Vista, AZ. In high school I played 3 years varsity at Buena High School as a setter and middle. Once I started attending the U of A I played for the B team for two years playing almost every position on the court and earning a silver medal in 2013 and a 5th place finish at nationals in 2014. Going into my senior year I realized I wanted to gear my energy towards coaching and was luckily trusted with coaching the b team for the 2014-2015 season where we finished with a gold medal. The following year we were able to run it back and win gold again. 2016-2019 ended with finishes of 5th, 9th, and 3rd. Currently I coach at Rincon/University High school for both the girls and boys varsity teams, and teach there as well. I have also been coaching for Arizona Premier Volleyball (APV) a local boys club for the past six years ranging from 15's to 18's. Though I coach many teams and teach full time I continue to come back and coach the U of A boys because of the high level of play, the family aspect, and getting a chance to travel while coaching. Bear Down!!
