Hewitt-Trussville at Vestavia Hills to Meet in AHSAA/NFHS Network Game of the Week

     MONTGOMERY – The NFHS Network’s subscriber-based AHSAA School Broadcast Program has 79 events tonight through October 11 planned to be video live-streamed over its on-line platform. A record 38 varsity football games are planned for Thursday, Friday and Saturday – bringing the total this season on the NFHS Network to 188. Overall events, including volleyball, cross country and other special events, are approaching 500 with 485 already in this school year.
     That slate begins tonight with nine varsity and JV volleyball matches, two varsity football games and one middle school game.
     This week’s headliner is Hewitt-Trussville (5-1) at Vestavia Hills (4-1) in a key Class 7A, Region 3 game. The Vestavia Hills High School NFHS Network School Broadcast Program is producing the game that is being featured as the AHSAA’s NFHS Network Game of the Week.
     The Huskies are coming off a 41-0 win over Huffman, the first shutout of the season for Coach Josh Floyd’s team and the first since Sept. 29 of last year. Vestavia Hills beat Shades Valley 41-21 last week. The victory was No. 333 for head coach Buddy Anderson, the state’s all-time wins leader with a 333-147 career slate over the last 41 years – all at Vestavia. He was inducted into the NFHS National Hall of Fame last summer and has been a member of the Alabama High School Sports Hall of Fame since 2003.  His father Dovey Anderson, inducted into the AHSAA Hall of Fame in its inaugural 1991 class, served as head coach at Thomasville High School from 1932-1961 compiling 180-82-27 record. Combined, the Andersons are the state’s all-time father-son football coaching leaders with 513 wins, 229 losses and 27 ties – all at just two schools.|      
      Floyd, 38-14 at Hewitt-Trussville since becoming head coach in 2014, came from Shiloh Christian High School in Arkansas where his teams compiled a 99-29-1 record and won four state titles. His 2016 and 2017 teams at Hewitt finished 11-1. Quarterback Paul Tyson, the great grandson of University of Alabama coaching legend Paul “Bear” Bryant, has been sensational for the last two seasons. He has passed for 5,106 yards over the last 18 games completing 357-of-510 passes for 54 touchdowns with only three interceptions. He is 119-of-174 this season for 1,714 yards and 18 TDs with just one pick. Tyson, who is completing 68.4% of his passes, threw for 409 yards in a season-opening 34-30 loss to Cedar Grove (GA). His top receiver is Ja’Varrius Johnson, a senior recently selected for the Alabama All-Star squad that will meet Mississippi in December at Cramton Bowl. Johnson has 40 catches for 810 yards and seven TDs, and Dazalin Worsham had 49 receptions for 590 yards and eight scores. Running back Armoni Goodwin has 777 yards rushing on 118 carries and eight TDs. Another Alabama All-Star selection Pierce Quick anchors the offensive line.
    Anderson, who has coached Vestavia Hills to 62 shutout wins in his coaching span, features a more traditional run-first offense led by senior running back Cooper Bishop, who has 108 carries for 708 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. Quarterback Eli Sawyer, a 6-2, 215-pound junior, has completed 45-of-86 passes for 735 yards and three TDs this season with just two interceptions. Senior tight end Michael Vice (6-4, 246), has caught 34 passes for 336 yards and three scores. He is also an Alabama All-Star selection.  Defensive leaders include middle linebacker Rob Barrentine and defensive lineman Andrew Sims.
      NFHS Network subscribers have plenty to choose from this weekend. Among the other top games is Gardendale (4-2) at Pinson Valley (4-1) in Class 6A, Region 6 where senior quarterback Bo Nix will be attempting to become just the fourth player in AHSAA history to reach the 10,000-yard total offense mark in history, Nix has 9,630 yards in his career and needs 371 yards to crack 10,000. Nix has compiled a 31-2 record as a starter including 15-0 in leading the Indians to the Class 6A state title in 2017. He is 510-of-932 passing for his career for 7,785 yards and 90 touchdowns with no sacks this season and only three over the last three years in 647 pass attempts. Nix has also rushed for 1,845 career yards and 29 touchdowns on 224 carries.
     The all-time AHSAA career total offense leader is Terrance Hollingsworth of Class 1A Berry High School, who amassed 11,788 yards from 2009-13 (9,819 rushing, 1,240 receiving, 729 passing). Zane Smith of Susan Moore (2004-06) and Mitch Stults of Hamilton (2009-12) were two quarterbacks who totaled 11,266 and 11,004 yards, respectively, in their prep careers to rank 2-3.
      At Mobile, defending Class 4A state champion UMS-Wright (5-0) hosts Hillcrest-Evergreen (4-2), last year’s Class 3A state champion now competing in 4A, Region 1 with the Bulldogs. Other key games on the NFHS Network include Class 7A Lee-Montgomery (4-2) vs. Prattville (3-2) tonight at Cramton Bowl and Mountain Brook (5-0) at Oak Mountain (1-4) at Heardmont Park. Other top games set for Friday over the NFHS Network include: (2A) Sheffield (4-2) at Red Bay (3-2); (3A) Providence Christian (6-0) at Pike County (5-1) and Weaver (4-1) at Randolph County (4-1); (6A) St. Paul’s Episcopal (4-1) at Spanish Fort (4-1); and Decatur (4-2) at Muscle Shoals (4-2).
