TRUSSVILLE— The Hewitt-Trussville Huskies (1-1) look to keep their momentum rolling in this week’s match-up against the Oak Mountain Eagles in the first region contest for both teams this season.
The Husky offense has looked very impressive to start the 2018 season and it starts with the quarterback Paul Tyson.
Tyson has thrown for 645 yards with 7 touchdowns in just two weeks into the season and shows no sign of slowing down. Wide receivers Dazalin Worsham and Ja’Varrius Johnson make the job easy for Tyson as they both have over 200 yards receiving a piece.
Sophomore running back Armoni Goodwin has proven himself to be a focal point in the offense as he comes into the game with 266 total rushing yards through two games.
The offense has proven to be balanced and not afraid to take the deep shots downfield at any moment, so expect the Eagle defense to try to minimize the big plays from the Husky offense.
Oak Mountain had a bye week and has not played since their 42-9 win over Chelsea on Aug 24. It will be important for the Husky offense to be “Husky fast” in order to take advantage of the lack of game experience from the Eagles.
On the defensive side of the ball for the Huskies they must stop the mental miscues and find ways to cause turnovers.
Creed Parker looks to keep his great defensive play this week as he comes off an impressive performance in which he forced a fumble and intercepted a pass against West Forsyth. Malachi Moore is a lockdown corner and does not mind press coverage on any wide receiver.
