The Huskies owe the Spartans a “Thank you.”
With Mountain Brook’s 10-7 win over No. 3 Vestavia Hills on Friday night, Hewitt-Trussville (4-5, 4-3 Class 6A, Region 6) has clinched a state playoffs berth.
The Huskies in two weeks will travel to No. 2 Bob Jones (8-1), which lost its first game of the season Friday night to Austin, 28-22.
Hewitt-Trussville is 2-1 all-time against Bob Jones. Bob Jones defeated Hewitt-Trussville 35-14 in the first round of the 2009 Class 6A playoffs.
Hewitt-Trussville missed the Class 6A playoffs last season, its first time not participating in the postseason since the 2006 season.
Hewitt-Trussville hosts Gadsden City next Friday in the regular-season finale, a non-region matchup at Jack Wood Stadium. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
