Huskies Defeat James Clemens to Finish Perfect in Region Play
The Hewitt-Trussville Football team defeated James Clemens 44-13 Friday night in Madison. With the win the Huskies improved to 9-0 on the year and finished 7-0 in 7A Region 4. Coach Josh Floyd’s team has gone 14-0 in the Region over the past two seasons. “It’s a tough thing to do, obviously, no matter what level you’re at, so to be able to do that two years in a row makes me super proud of my team,” Floyd said. “They’ve worked extremely hard for this.”
The Huskies once again got off to a fast start. On the first offensive possession, Quarterback Paul Tyson hit Logan Pitts across the middle of the field. Pitts stiff-armed defenders and weaved his way for a 78-yard touchdown. On the ensuing kickoff, James Clemens mishandled the kick and Trevor Sisk recovered the fumble for the Huskies. Tyson this time ran it in from eight yards out and the Huskies took an early 14-0 lead.
Later in the first half, Senior Elliot McElwain got in on the scoring. He caught a screen pass from Tyson and ran in the end zone from 12 yards out. On the next drive, Myles Mason crashed in from two yards out for another score. That put the Huskies ahead 28-0.
Tyson threw another touchdown pass in the second half as he connected with Dazalin Worsham for a 40-yard score. Kicker Parker Colburn also had a great night. He connected on three field goals. His last was good from 49 yards out.
For the game Tyson threw for 266 yards and three touchdowns. The Huskies also ran for 239 yards and two scores.
