In addition to spending countless hours developing juniors, amateurs and professionals golfers at the highest level, he has authored books, produced videos and invented training aids, all of which have had modest national and international success.

Colby has been designated a Certified Consultant by the Applied Association of Sport Psychology (CC-AASP), the international professional organization of sport and exercise psychology. He is the only PGA Teacher of the Year in the nation to have earned CC-AASP credentials. Additionally, Huffman has received Certified Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) golf fitness instructor status, and is a Certified Titleist Club Fitter.

Huffman has worked with many top-ranked juniors and LPGA standouts. He is the only coach in the world to have developed two Byron Nelson International Junior Golf Award recipients in the same year (2008), and he has produced eight Junior All-Americans. Multiple students held Top 10 World Rankings via Golfweek and AJGA rankings, one of which held the #1 World Ranking.
