TRUSSVILLE — The Hewitt-Trussville football team will be the focus of an episode of Small Town Big Deal as the nationally televised program highlights high school football in the south.
The show will be in Trussville on Oct. 25, 2019, to experience what high school football in the south represents and how the sport impacts each town.
With over one million viewers weekly, Small Town Big Deal is hosted by TV stars Rodney Miller and Jann Carl. Their show travels the country highlighting interesting people, communities and events in celebration of the countless great stories of America.
“We look for stories that fill us with pride, give us hope, make us laugh and remind us that national treasures are often found where we least expect them,” Carl, formerly with Entertainment Tonight said. “That’s why we decided to showcase high school football. What is more small-town America that high school football.”
Small Town Big Deal can be watched on channel WOIL on Friday at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday at 7:30 p.m.
The Hewitt-Trussville football team is in the midst of a 4-4 season. The Huskies will conclude the 2019 regular season against the No. 1 team in Class 7A, Thompson, on Oct. 25.
