What kind of baby snake, about 3' long?

I saw a TINY snake about 3" long the other day while pulling some grass away from the side of the house. At first I thought it was a worm but when I went to grab it and put it in my flower bed, it jumped. I never did get a good look at it, but it was brownish and it seemed like there was some kind of stripe lengthwise on either side. The head was more triangular than oval. I'm in south-central AL, just a few miles N of FL border. Does this description fit any of the poisonous snakes around here? Pretty sure there was no rattle, hoping it was a garter snake but I can only find info about mature snakes, nothing about the size of the babies.
