1.What should we know about Stephon Huderson the person?

I’m a social butterfly. Everyone I come in contact with within whatever environment it may be is impacted in a positive way. This has always been something I strive to do.

2.What sets you apart from other running backs?

I am an every-down back. I don’t specialize in just one thing. I BLOCK, I CATCH the ball well out the backfield, and I can get you a first down on 4th and 2.

3. How do you prepare for games?

I prep for games by getting rid of all distractions. I’m not on my phone as much before games, I’m laser-focused in on the task at hand. I also prepare for games by getting in my zone with the tunes. I usually have Boosie, Whop Beezy, or Youngboy playing in the headphones.

4. What is your favorite workout? 

My favorite workout is power-clean. It’s a straight-up explosive lift that not all “strong” people are great at.

5. What are you looking forward to in your upcoming season?

I’m looking forward to winning this conference as a team and doing whatever I can to make an impact, which is dominating the Southland conference in every category possible from rushing to kickoff return yards.

6. If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?

I’ll hang out with Darren Sproles because he dominates the game on special teams and he’s versatile in the backfield. He’s been doing that consistently for years.

7. What type of energy do you bring onto the football field?

I bring relentless energy each and every day and try to make it contagious to those around me. You won’t see me doing all the yelling and screaming but I have a lot of small talks with players and I always wear a smile on my face to show that I’m happy to be here.

8. What are your favorite moments from your football life?   

My favorite moments from football come from some of the losses. It’s amazing how locked in a team could be after a loss and the energy that they come with the next week to work their butts off to win the next one because of the embarrassment from the previous loss.

9. What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?

I was actually a basketball player and then my boys wanted me to come to play football when I was 12 and ever since then I’ve been in love with it. Football is the sport I was meant to play! 

10. What would a team get in a player like you?

A team would get a low-maintenance guy/blue-collar guy that’s simply got the job done. Shows up to every practice and game ready to give 110%.

11. What do you love about the game of football?

I love the response to adversity. Adversity is going to hit you at some point in football and how you respond to it could potentially turn the game around. That goes for life as well! It translates everywhere.

12. What is your mindset when you are on the football field?

“The first man should not make the tackle,” Make a play,” “finish the play,” “kill.” Those are all the things I’m telling myself every play before the snap. My mindset is to dominate whoever is in front of me each play until the whistle stops.
