Sioux City Journal: Who is Albert Huddleston?
Sioux City Journal: Who is Albert Huddleston?: "A company spokesman said Huddleston does a tremendous amount of philanthropy as well, but doesn't like it to be public. However, it wasn't possible to keep one effort last year under wraps. Huddleston received worldwide publicity when he spent more than $100,000 to bring Iraq's under-14 boys soccer team to Dallas, where it was one of 180 teams from around the world to compete in the Dallas Cup, an international youth tournament. WFAA.com reported that Hyperion Resources had been training Iraqi oil workers for a couple years and had signed an agreement with Iraq, hoping to play a role in developing its oil fields. But Huddleston wanted the focus on the youth and his desire to have the youth of America meet the youth of Iraq."
