But he decided to try trick shots after seeing a youtube video.
After emerging as the fourth runner up in the international event, the youth's videos started becoming viral as the 'Kashmiri trick-shot artist'.
With firm support from his family and friends, who encouraged him to make videos and utilise social media, Shah began to propagate his talent of playing football trick shots online.
He has about 300 posts on social media that have a huge following.
Huzaib's passion for trick shots has only emboldened his dreams of a future where his talent would attract people on a national scale and inspire them.

I request the J-K administration to provide him with all sporting amenities," Syed Burhan, the young footballer's friend.
