Jeff Mauldin enters his 12th year as the Head Baseball Coach at Hewitt Trussville High School. In the
previous eleven years at Hewitt Trussville, his teams have gone 301-101-1 with one state championship
(2016), three state runner-up (2013, 2018, 2022), a final four appearance (2019) and six area
championships. He has sent 51 players to play college baseball in eleven years and has had three
players (Grayson Jones, 11 th round Atlanta Braves), Tyler Tolbert (13 th round Kansas City Royals) and
Carson Skipper (11 th round Colorado Rockies) drafted in the major league draft. After making it to the 7A
state finals in 2022 (fourth time at HTHS), 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 in the top 10 the entire year. He currently has former players playing at the
following schools: Auburn, Alabama, Tulane, New Orleans, Alabama State, Grambling State, Shorter
College, Huntingdon College, Marion Military and Snead State. Two former Huskies are playing
professionally, Tyler Tolbert is in the Kansas City Royals organization and Carson Skipper with the
Colorado Rockies.
“We are looking forward to year twelve of the building process of our program. The last eleven 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, freshman 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
the last eleven 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, Oxford and
Jacksonville 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
