Joseph Huwe – Faulkner County Falcons (501 Basketball Team 2023)

Joseph Huwe exemplifies quiet confidence for the Faulkner County Falcons. 

“Joseph has a soft, quiet spirit, but is fierce on the court,” said Falcons Head Coach Brad Rusher. “He has mastered the skill of blocking out and getting boards. He is a hard worker and a team player. The team can rely on Joseph pulling down rebounds both offensively and defensively. He gives 100 percent every time he is on the court. He is also mastering the skill of putbacks.”

Huwe, a senior, has loved sports from an early age, but basketball and shooting sports are his passions. 

“My first time that I traveled to participate in National Christian Homeschool Basketball Championship in Springfield, Mo. was a special memory,” Huwe said. “This is a time of lifelong friendship building along with a week of playing basketball. This event is now larger than the attendance and participation of the Olympics. With our Falcon families that do basketball, relationships are built for a lifetime ­­— not just with the players on the court. We lean on one another on and off the court. We are family.”

Huwe participates in shooting sports with the Bigelow High School team. He achieved Eagle Rank within the Boys Scouts at the age of 14. He also enjoys playing guitar and working on his bowling game. “I fight low self-esteem, off and on the court,” Huwe said. “I have a great support system in both places that give me encouragement. Life is not about I. It’s a team.”
