TRUSSVILLE — First-year Hewitt-Trussville head football coach Josh Floyd was the featured speaker at last week’s Trussville Area Chamber of Commerce luncheon.
Floyd talked a little bit about his style of football.
“Where most teams run about 50 plays in a game, we will run about 75 plays,” Floyd said. “We want to wear down our opponents. Everything we do is ‘Husky fast.’ We’ll be ‘basketball on turf.’”
While Floyd spoke at the Trussville Civic Center, attendees could see that through a window behind him the new artificial turf for Hewitt-Trussville Stadium was being delivered.
“It will take a while to install the turf, so be patient while that happens,” he said. “We hope the stadium will be completed in time to play some of our games there this season.”
Floyd said the most important things in his house all begin with the letter F: faith, family and football.
“That’s what we do,” he said. “That’s what we’re about.”
Floyd talked about his five core values: be positive, compete in everything you do, responsibility, attention to detail and have more fun playing football than anyone else in Alabama.
Floyd said he hopes to change the culture at Hewitt-Trussville by building on the past and traditions. He said he demands excellence in everything the players do, on and off the field.
He ended his speech by talking about the hurry-up, no-huddle offense and that “attacking style” defense Hewitt-Trussville will run.
“I think we’re going to be fun to watch,” he said.
The chamber also recognized its August Customer Service Award recipient as Nemeisha Webb from the AT&T store.
