TRUSSVILLE — When MaxPreps released its latest national high school football rankings on Tuesday, Hewitt-Trussville (2-0) joined a pair of Class 7A, Region 3 opponents.
No. 20 Thompson, No. 33 Hoover and the 45th-ranked Huskies are the only three Alabama schools listed among the national top 50, and all three compete in the same region.
That means Hewitt-Trussville has high-end home games ahead against Thompson on Sept. 18 and Hoover on Oct. 2. The Huskies split the two-game set last fall, beating the eventual state champion Warriors, 35-29, and falling by a final of 28-14 at Hoover.
Senior running back Armoni Goodwin ran wild in a runaway victory at Pinson Valley on Aug. 21. The season-opening win led to a forfeit decision over Saraland last week. This Friday night, Hewitt-Trussville opens up Region 3 play at Spain Park (2-0).
