When Hewitt-Trussville has the ball...
Look for the Huskies to keep giving the ball to their two backs. Goodwin has speed and quickness, while Jackson has the power that can break tackles on any run. The Huskies passing game with Carrutt has picked up with big plays to receiver Omari Kelly in the second half of the season. Getting Jackson in the open field with screen plays have played big. Goodwin can break a long run any play.
When James Clemens has the ball...
Look for the Jets on using their ground game to setup the passing game. Manny Sanders and Tyrik Walker are two good targets for the Jets passing game. On short yardage situations, QB Gio Lopez will be called into service for the short yardage first down or touchdown runs. Cantrell and Lopez share playing times on the field but alternate game situations and not series.
