Friday night, Sideline will feature one of the biggest games not only in the state, but in the nation, as Hewitt-Trussville takes on Thompson in Class 7A, Region 3. This game will be broadcast nationally on ESPNU and it’s surrounded by all the hype as both the Warriors and Huskies are undefeated at 4-0.

From the outside, Class 7A No. 1 Thompson at No. 2 Hewitt-Trussville on Friday night appears to be the biggest game of the year. Class 4A has an Alabama Sports Writers Association’s 1 vs. 2 matchup this week, too, as American Christian plays at Bibb County.
Hewitt-Trussville’s 35-29 win in the final regular season game of 2019 spoiled eventual state champion Thompson’s bid for a perfect season. And, finally, the Worldwide Leader in Sports will be on hand to broadcast the 7:30 p.m. Region 3 game to the nation on ESPNU.
Last year, Hewitt beat Thompson 35-29 in the final regular season game, but Thompson had already won the region and home field advantage in the playoffs. With this match-up earlier in the season this year, Thompson head coach Mark Freeman believes there’s more pressure.
“These region games you have to win them and the next one is the most important one. Football in this state starts in November and we want to win enough to play in November and we have to win enough to put ourselves into a great position and it starts with games like this,” said Freeman.
Tickets for this match-up went on sale about a month ago and sold out within minutes. This is Hewitt’s first official home game and Coach Floyd believes the stakes couldn’t be any higher.
Thompson (4-0, 2-0) will send at least seven players into the fray who have Division I football offers. First-year quarterback Conner Harrell has an offer from the University of Tennessee. The 6-foot-1, 191-pound junior threw for 410 yards and three touchdowns last week.
Other standouts for the Warriors include junior Jeremiah Alexander (6-2, 235, junior, defensive lineman, Alabama commit), Peter Woods (6-4, 250, sophomore defensive lineman, offers from every SEC school, plus Notre Dame, Michigan and Southern Cal), Tony Mitchell (6-1, 180, sophomore defensive back, offers from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and more), senior wideout Tre Roberson (6-3, 195, Army commit) and senior receiver J.B. Mitchell (6-2, 190, offers from Navy, South Alabama, Samford, Eastern Michigan).Hewitt-Trussville (4-0, 2-0) can counter with, among others, Auburn commit Armoni Goodwin at running back. Coming off an abbreviated season due to an injury last year, Goodwin has piled up 521 yards and eight touchdowns in three games (the Huskies also have a forfeit win over Saraland).
