During the meeting, the school board approved Mauldin as the new Hewitt-Trussville head baseball coach and Schrupp as the assistant coach.

“I think that by us bringing in a top coach like coach Mauldin and his top assistant coach Schrupp shows that we are very serious about building a championship program,” said Trussville School Board President Bill Roberts. “These men are not only great coaches, they are quality men and teachers.”

The Hewitt-Trussville head baseball coaching position was previously held by coach Jason Estabrook.

While at Pelham High, Mauldin compiled a 176-51 record in six years as the Panthers’ head baseball coach. He recently guided PHS to the quarterfinals in this year’s Alabama High School Athletic Association Class 6A state playoffs.
