TRUSSVILLE - Did you know that nearly 1/5 of TCS students participate in some form of athletics? That was just one of many insightful statistics provided by TCS Athletics Director Lance Walker at the June 2022 Trussville Area Chamber of Commerce Luncheon.

As keynote speaker, Walker gave a 30,000 scan of Hewitt-Trussville Athletics. In addition to sharing stats on the sheer volume of student-athletes (1,015 to be exact), Walker indicated that: HTMS/HTHS teams combined to participate in 1,044 competitions this past school year; HT had a total of 65 teams compete across all sports/levels; 27 Senior student-athletes signed college scholarships (eight sports represented); 38 state championships (18 titles/20 runners-up) since the history of the school; 15 of those (6 state titles/9 runners-up) captured just since 2016. The speech was delivered to a packed house at the Trussville Civic Center and was sponsored by Ascension.

Walker is a 2001 graduate of Hewitt-Trussville High School where he lettered in football and golf. As TCS Athletics Director, Walker oversees 23 varsity sports.
