The next player to be showcased in our Player Spotlight series is Larry Hudson. Throwing bags for about 5 years now, Larry started playing the game with family and friends at Salty Senorita’s bar. Now he's a staple at most big events around the valley typically playing in his trademarked cowboy boots.
Considered one of the top players in the state, Larry has won several regional doubles events with various partners. His biggest cornhole accomplishment was being the first Arizona player to win the singles event at the Wild West Shootout. Larry’s long term goal would be to one day win the ACL COBS event. Having attended the event in 2016, Larry knows the commitment that it takes to compete at that level and he recommends the experience to all players.
Larry was born and raised in Arizona. He’s been married to the “best wife ever” for over 40 years now. He loves horses, fishing and muscle cars. For a career Larry owns The Hudson Auction House in Youngtown where people come from all over to bid on a large number of items each Friday night. He also carves out time each day at his auction house to get a little practice in where his main focus is keeping the bags in front of the hole on a consistent basis.
Like many cornhole players, Larry has really enjoyed the great people he’s met playing the game. He loves seeing how the game has grown in the Phoenix area and across the country. He has one bit of advice for the experienced players…
“Let’s all try to help the new guys and gals get better and have fun!”
Great advice from a champion and a true class act in the game!
