Huffman Eja-Tabe (born May 6, 1981 in Limbe, Cameroon) is a professional soccer player who is currently coaches Ottawa Fury Fc, a small town soccer club in Ottawa


Before turning professional he played four seasons at Algonquin College having been littered with trophies and awards, winning the OCAA Silver Medal in 2001, and the CCAA Championship in 2002. In 2003 again he would win the OCAA Silver Medal and in 2004 the OCAA Provincial Champion. In 2002 and 2004 he was selected as OCAA League All-Star. And was a CCAA All-Canadian selection in 2004.

In 2005 he signed for the Toronto Lynx playing 19 games and scoring his first goal on August 21 against the Puerto Rico Islanders in an 1-1 draw.[1][2] In 2006 Duncan Wilde was appointed as Head Coach and he fell out of favour with Wilde and was released, only playing 3 games.

After being released by the Lynx, Eja-Tabe signed with Oakville Blue Devils of the Canadian Soccer League helping the team make the playoffs but lost to 2-1 to Windsor Border Stars in the quarter finals.

He left the Blue Devils in 2007 to join Ottawa Fury of the USL Premier Development League, and made his debut in a match against Brooklyn Knights on 24 June 2007.

In October 2007, Eja-Tabe was in talks with several clubs in Austria and Sweden. He recently rejected a move with Iranian giants Persepolis FC.

Huffman is currently resising in Gatineau and enjoys reading, biking, and various other off-field activities. He also contributes to many different charities and is known in the Ottawa community for his philanthropist work.
