    Come on, let's not pretend that talking football in Fort Thomas is like talking football in every other small town in the country. We all know the Highlands fans expect more, and deservingly so. A fews years ago the Highlands fans were touting one of the highest winning percentages in the county, being tied for the most State Championships in the state, and being one of the top two, or three, teams in the state, regardless of class.

    So do we know if "ANYONE" showed? To me, the tweet that has went out each of the last 3 days sure sounded a little desperate!

    Just sayin!

    Do not think that is the case at all to be quite honest, unless the mom's are having their way and not letting their boys play football and pushing them to soccer, golf or maybe even cheerleading.

    Kind of poking fun, but also stating reality in today's society. Many see football as a violent sport and soccer is certainly taking off in this country because of it IMO. Cheerleading at HHS is having more and more boys get involved believe it or not. Wave of the future? As for golf, there is not a safer sport for a kid to play in the fall unless they get hit with a club or an errant shot.

    Bowling is a Winter sport and isn't Bass Fishing a Spring sport. Highlands does not have one of those yet, but give it a few years. Hearing there may be an archery team in the near future as well.

    Someone needs to educate those moms about soccer. A player is just as likely to get a concussion in soccer as they are in football.

    Is this really a problem at hhs? How many on the soccer team would be impact players on the varsity football field? I’m not familiar with hhs soccer.

    I don't know the football skills of the kids on the soccer team(s) at HHS.
    But, generally speaking, what skills would a soccer player bring over?
    Kicking?- Don't know how many, but I would guess that several schools use soccer players for kicking. NewCath had two of them handling the kicking duties this past season. Maybe Coach Niedert has someone that can nail a 45 yd FG?
    Speed? - I don't think that this was/is a particular weakness for the Birds.
    What else?

    Now if wrestling were at the same time and a Birds wrestling team had a few kids in the 285lb class, you'd be on to something!

    Doubt cheerleading is going to hurt high school football teams any time soon. Well, ever really...

    As I said, just poking fun at the thought that Highlands was "begging" for football players with the various things posted on social media about a meeting that was held yesterday.

    On the topic of the meeting, anyone care to share the contents and are there going to be ANY changes
