In high school coaching, Jeff enters his ninth year as the Head Baseball Coach at Hewitt Trussville High School. In the previous eight years at Hewitt Trussville, his teams have gone 221-78 with one state championship (2016), two-state runner-up (2013, 2018), a final four appearances (2019), and four area championships. He has sent 39 players to play college baseball in eight years and has had two players (Grayson Jones, 11th round Atlanta Braves) and Tyler Tolbert (13th round Kansas City Royals) drafted in the major league draft. After making it to the 7A state semifinals in 2019 (fourth time in seven years), Coach Mauldin is looking forward to the challenge of continuing the process of building a program that will compete on the state and national level. Last year his team was ranked # 2 in the 7A Alabama State rankings when the season was canceled due to COVID-19. He currently has former players playing at the following schools: Auburn, LSU, Tennessee Tech, Troy, UAB, Alabama State, West Alabama, Bishop State, Coastal Alabama East, Northwest Florida State, Snead State, and Shelton State. One former Husky is playing professionally, Tyler Tolbert is in the Kansas City Royals organization.
“We are looking forward to year nine of the building process for our program. The last eight year’s teams laid a great foundation of what it takes to be a champion on and off the field. It is very important for our current players and coaches to continue the building process. Our varsity, JV, and middle school programs all play championship-level baseball and represent our schools and community on and off the field with respect. We started to build a winning attitude and we will continue the process of having a winning culture. Our city of Trussville has had a big impact on our teams’ success in the last eight years. The community support has been unlike anything we have ever seen. Seeing thousands of Trussville fans pack out Phil English field and travel to Montgomery for the state championships is what our city is about. We look forward to the continued support from the great city of Trussville, as we work together to build a program that our community will be proud of for many years to come.”
Mauldin previously spent six years as the Head Coach at Pelham High School where he compiled a 176-51 record. His teams won four area championships in the six years as the coach of the Panthers, reaching the quarterfinals of the state playoffs twice. His teams were ranked repeatedly #1 in the state and were a mainstay in national polls including a stint as the #1 team in the nation in the max preps high school poll.
