John W. Huber II (a.k.a. John Huber, "The Other" John Huber, or Juan Hubero ) is a yo-yo player from Seattle, Washington, now residing in Buffalo, NY. Since his arrival on the yo-yo scene in 2000, there has been plenty of confusion between him and John Huber, another yo-yo player out of Arizona. Who would've ever thought there would be two John Hubers who yo-yoed???

Now this particular John Huber started yo-yoing in the summer of 2000, in the back of a tattoo shop in Bremerton, Washington. The name of the shop is Tattoo Technique. At first, he only messed around with yo-yos when he was hanging out at the shop, and didn't take it all too seriously. Between a couple of the artists, as well as a few other hangarounds, an unofficial yo-yo club had begun to take shape. The club didn't have a name though until the 2000 National Yo-Yo Contest, when Jesse Avery came up with StrungOut in the Northwest. The name stuck, and the club had a run of several years before ceasing to exist in 2008.

On June 1st, 2008, at a post-contest dinner in Indianapolis, IN, John Huber and four others founded the Ditch Down Crew. At first, the club was small, with only 10 members. But in 2009, the club began expanding, and the sky is the limit with the 44 Crew. Only time will tell where things go from here.
