Michael Huey is a rookie offensive lineman out of the University of Texas that has stepped in to become an integral part of this year’s offensive line, an offensive line that is keeping Nick Davila on a record setting pace for the 2012 season. We took some time this week to get to know Michael a little better and this is what we found out:
OL Michael Huey (6’5”, 315) was signed as a free agent in 2011 by the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle cut Huey during training camp a week later and was then picked up by the San Diego Chargers. Huey played in three preseason games before being cut by the Chargers.
Huey was a four-year guard and played special teams as well. Huey played in 47 games, starting in 20, while playing with UT. Huey started all games he played in 2010 but missed the last four due to injury. He ended his 2010 season against Baylor on Oct. 30th when he tore his medial collateral ligament and meniscus in his right knee. Huey was a second-team Academic All-Big 12 selection and named one of UT’s Outstanding Offensive Newcomers as a freshman. Huey graduated with a degree in physical culture and sport.
Huey attended Kilgore High School in Kilgore, TX where he was a prep All-American and All-State performer. Huey posted 164 knockdowns as a two-year starter, earning first-team 4A All-State honors by the Associated Press and the Texas Sports Writers Association as a senior and a starting position in the 2007 U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Huey was a member of ESPN’s Top 150 national prospects as a senior and a member of the 2004 Texas 4A State Championship Team. Huey went on to graduate early and enroll at UT in January 2007 in order to take part in spring drills.
