By Gary Lloyd
TRUSSVILLE — Hewitt-Trussville has released its 2015 varsity football schedule.
The season starts with quite a bang.
The Huskies on Friday, Aug. 21 will host Montgomery Bell (Tenn.) Academy at 7 p.m., a game that replaces the non-region Gadsden City contest. Hewitt-Trussville and Gadsden City agreed to not play in Week 5, due to Class 7A Regions 3 and 4 being paired up in the playoffs. The Huskies beat Gadsden City 31-27 in Week 5 last year, but were later knocked out of the playoffs by the Titans 54-37.
The game against Montgomery Bell Academy is part of a home-and-home deal, meaning the Huskies will travel north to Tennessee to start the 2016 season.
Montgomery Bell Academy won the Tennessee state championship and finished nationally ranked in the top 50 in 2014.
On Friday, Aug. 28, Hewitt-Trussville will travel to Gardendale. Class 7A, Region 3 play begins Sept. 4 when the Huskies play host to Tuscaloosa County. Hewitt-Trussville will play at Vestavia Hills on Sept. 11, host Spain Park on Sept. 18 and have a bye week Sept. 25.
On Oct. 2, the Huskies travel to Oak Mountain, followed by an Oct. 9 home game against Thompson. Hewitt-Trussville hosts Mountain Brook on Oct. 16, travels to Hoover on Oct. 23 and travels to Clay-Chalkville on Oct. 30.
Hewitt-Trussville posted a 5-6 record in 2014.
