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.
Below you can listen to an in-depth interview with Coach Floyd about this year’s squad on today’s podcast.

Floyd came to Alabama after an impressive ten years at his alma mater Shiloh Christian in Arkansas. Floyd led the program to a 99-29-1 record with five straight appearances in state championship games. His teams won titles in 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010.
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.
