TRUSSVILLE – Hewitt Trussville had a few questions entering Spring practice. Entering summer workouts in preparation for the 2023 season, Hewitt Coach Josh Floyd feels like a few of those questions have been answered.
“I thought it was a really good Spring overall, ” said Floyd. “We are still in the evaluation part at this point so it’s great to see our guys go in competition with each other.”
Hewitt traveled to Troy to take on 5A Charles Henderson in a Spring Scrimmage to wrap up their camp, and rising senior quarterback Peyton Floyd was in midseason form. The 2022 All State signal caller was 13-14 passing on the night with a 42 yard touchdown run added on to lead Hewitt to a 27-17 win over the Trojans.
Hewitt jumped out to a quick 13-0 lead, and stretched the lead to 20-7 at halftime thanks to a 15 play scoring drive.
The reserves played the second half as Hewitt added another touchdown late.
Noah Dobbins led the Huskies in rushing with 67 yards. Veteran Jaqson Melton and Kennedy Mitchell had 47 yards rushing apiece for the Huskies.
Jadon Loving had 6 receptions for 71 yards and KaDarious Barnes had 3 receptions for 69 yards.
Hewitt will head into summer workouts no doubt preparing for a tough opponent in 7A Central of Phenix City. Hewitt hosts the Red Devils on August 25th to kick off the 2023 season.
