Aubrey Lewis Huff III (born December 20, 1976, in Marion, Ohio) is a Major League Baseball first baseman with the San Francisco Giants. He debuted in 2000 with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, and later played for the Houston Astros, Baltimore Orioles, and Detroit Tigers. He is the starting first baseman for the San Francisco Giants who won the 2010 World Series. He played college baseball at the University of Miami.

Huff grew up in Mineral Wells, Texas. When he was six years old, his father, Aubrey II, was killed as an innocent bystander in a workplace domestic dispute, fatally shot attempting to take away a gun from a threatening man. Huff attended Mineral Wells High School, then transferred to Brewer High School in Fort Worth before his junior year in 1992. Huff was an All-District baseball player and also excelled in basketball for the Brewer Bears, and graduated in 1994.

After attending Vernon College in north Texas, Huff transferred to the University of Miami in Florida and, as a junior, was named second team "All-American" by Baseball Weekly. In his final season, he set a school season record with 95 RBIs and led the Hurricanes in home runs (21), doubles (20) and total bases (179).
