Probable huntsman?

Posting partially for help IDing. I am thinking Sparassidae, a huntsman spider: "Sparassidae are eight-eyed spiders. The eyes appear in two largely forward-facing rows of four" (wikipedia).

 

We found this handsome specimen on the shore of the Current River in Missouri.

 

Taken with schromann's camera, hence the "ahem" below.
