Hewitt-Trussville hosts Woodlawn in first home game
By Gary Lloyd
The last time Hewitt-Trussville lost to Woodlawn, the entirety of the current Huskies’ roster had not been born.
Hewitt-Trussville has dominated the series, winning eight straight contests against Woodlawn, last losing 33-12 in 1994. Hewitt-Trussville leads the all-time series 10-2, according to the Alabama High School Football Historical Society.
Kickoff at Jack Wood Stadium on Friday is set for 7 p.m.
Last season, the Huskies defeated the Class 6A, Region 6 opponent Woodlawn 28-18. Hewitt-Trussville was outstanding running the football in that game. Former running back Dakota Harwell rushed for 159 yards and three touchdowns, and running back Donovan Miller rushed for 99 yards and a score.
In this year’s contest, look for big games out of senior running backs Peyton Palmer, Donald Voltz and Zac Keahey. Sophomore quarterback Zac Thomas, a threat to run the ball, could also have a big game. Also watch for a strong effort and possibly the forcing of some turnovers from Hewitt-Trussville’s defense.
