A former Sherwood Park football star is now making a name for himself on the biggest collegiate stage.

Chuba Hubbard set multiple career highs in Saturday's (Nov.10) bedlam game, where the Oklahoma State Cowboys fell just short in a 48-47 loss against the Oklahoma Sooners.
Sherwood Park’s Hubbard rushed for 104 yards and scored three touchdowns. He also had five catches for 49 yards.

“We didn't do too much passing in high school so I knew that was something I had to work on," said Hubbard. "I didn't just want to be a one-dimensional back, I wanted to be an all around back where I could catch, pass block and run."

Hubbard re-wrote the Edmonton Metro League’s football record books in his time with the Bev Facey Falcons.

“I feel like where we're from people are always told that 'they can't do it, it's too big, the States has better players', but that's not true at all. As long as you work hard and stay true to yourself you can go a long ways."

The Cowboys have another tough task ahead of them next week. They’ll welcome the 9th ranked West Virginia Mountaineers to Boones Pickens Stadium on Saturday (Nov.17).
