Since coming to Alabama six years ago, Hewitt-Trussville head coach Josh Floyd continues to close-in on his goal of bringing the Huskies their first-ever Alabama high school football state championship. Since 2017, the Huskies have spent a significant amount of time in the High School Football America 100 national rankings, but heading into 2019, Floyd and his program is just outside of the Top 100.

Hewitt-Trussville lost some big-time Division I talent in Alabama-recruits Paul Tyson (quarterback) and Pierce Quick (offensive tackle), plus Ja’varius Johnson (wide receiver) to Auburn, but the cupboard isn’t bare. Wide receiver Dazalin Worsham is back after a junior season that saw him catch 87 balls for 1,022 yards and 13 touchdowns.

During his high school days, Floyd was a record-setting quarterback under current Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn, who directed Shiloh from 1996 to 2000.
