Three More Join UB's 2006 Football Class
David Hubbard (Rancho Cucamonga, CA/Etiwanda HS), Chris Storr (Southfield, MI/Southfield HS) and Taylor Packwood (Mesquite, TX/Bishop Lynch HS) will be with the Bulls when they open camp on Monday, August 7 in preparation for the 2006 season.
Hubbard spent last season at Citrus Community College in California, earning All Western States Conference honorable mention honors while helping his team to the conference title. The 6-0, 235-pound outside linebacker recorded 50 tackles and four sacks.
“David Hubbard is a player with outstanding athletic ability and a great understanding of the details of defensive schemes,” said Gill of the California native.
A two-time All-League selection at Etiwanda HS, Hubbard racked up 82 tackles, six sacks and recovered a pair of fumbles in his senior season to help the Eagles to a 7-3 record. Etiwanda won the league title in his junior season. Hubbard, who was originally offered by Utah out of high school, will have three years of eligibility remaining.
Storr is a 6-0, 180-pound safety who was a three-year captain for Southfield HS while starring on both the gridiron and the baseball diamond. Storr was a first-team All-League choice in football and also was All-League and All-Conference as a centerfielder for the Blue Jays baseball team.
“Chris is an extremely physical player that made big plays on defense,” said Gill.
Packwood was also a two-sport standout in Gill's native state of Texas, earning kudos in both football and soccer. A four-year letterwinner on the gridiron, he was also twice a captain at powerhouse Bishop Lynch who were state champions in 2002 and 2003 and state semifinalists in Packwood's final two seasons. He earned second team All-District honors in football and was an all-state performer on the Friars soccer team as a goalkeeper.
“Tyler is a very accurate kicker with the ability to be an outstanding punter,” said Gill.
