A former standout Hewitt-Trussville wide receiver has returned to coach the position.
Huskies head football coach Hal Riddle said at last week’s Jefferson and Shelby County High School Football Media Day in Gardendale that Lee Guess, a 2002 Hewitt-Trussville graduate and former Auburn University wide receiver, has been added as the team’s wide receivers coach.
During the 2004 season at Auburn, in which the Tigers completed a perfect 13-0 season, Guess played in seven games, catching his first career pass against Mississippi State. In 2005, Guess played in nine games, catching three passes for 52 yards and a touchdown.
As a senior at Hewitt-Trussville, Guess caught a state-record 93 passes for 1,341 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also returned 27 kickoffs for 810 yards and scored one touchdown and blocked three field goal attempts. As a junior, Guess caught 87 passes for 1,252 yards and 11 touchdowns, and returned 25 kickoffs for 675 yards and one touchdown.
The Hewitt-Trussville varsity football coaching staff consists of Riddle, offensive coordinator Tim Reeves, defensive coordinator David Partridge, and assistant coaches Jeff Saxon, Tim Meacham, Chad Dahlke, Jeremiah Millington and Matt Partridge.
The freshman football team is coached by Bobby Johns. Travis Booker and Jake Garrett are the team’s assistants. Tyler Marlow is the eighth-grade team’s head coach, and his assistants are Bartley Brown, Justin Reynolds, Joey Bailey and Grant Bennett. The seventh-grade team is coached by head coach Scott Bromley, and assistant coaches Shawn McCombs, Shane Clay, Josh Warren, Daniel Moman and Caleb Waid.
