Richard (Dick) Huffman played four years of professional football in the United States before being lured to Canada by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Huffman was a splendid two-way tackle who was known for his tremendous strength and agility. In his final season in the Canadian Football League (CFL), Huffman was selected to the All-Star team as both an offensive and defensive tackle. Sports reports suggested that "enemy quarterbacks simply ran their plays away from Dick Huffman".

Inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum in 1987 as a player.
