TRUSSVILLE — Hewitt-Trussville senior and Huskies’ leading scorer Cameron Glover inked his place in program history after he entered the lofty 1,000-point club with just a few games remaining in his high school basketball career.
Glover, along with his twin, Colin, have been stalwarts on a Hewitt-Trussville team that has witnessed its fair share of success, along with some tribulations, during their four-year career with the Huskies.
This season, the Huskies have weathered a tough mid-season stretch in which they lost nine of 12 games from November through the beginning of January. Hewitt-Trussville will soon turn to the Class 7A, Area 6 tournament with a first-round contest against Spain Park on Feb. 6 at 6 p.m.
Hewitt-Trussville has had less than a stellar experience in the area tournament throughout the past few seasons. The Huskies have not won an area tournament game in three years and will head to Mountain Brook with a possible championship matchup against the No. 1 team in Class 7A, the Spartans.
Mountain Brook is ranked No. 1 in Alabama and No. 10 nationally by Maxpreps.
Regardless of the how this season concludes, Glover’s stamp will have been placed on a Hewitt-Trussville team looking to gain its foothold in a Class 7A field that includes some of the best teams in the nation.
The 5-foot-10 senior has received some interest from Division III teams, so worry not, this might not be the last time you catch Glover lacing up for years to come.
