    Just find it interesting.
    I congratulated Collins as did many other Highlands fans, but I'll never say that Collins was a better football team than the Bluebirds. Period. Enjoy the gift, IMO.

    Again, congrats on a job well done, Collins! I have a feeling they will be a force to recon with for a while. Very good program!

    Did you read all of my original post? The new rules allow for sport specific training in the off season. This will help teams close the gap, which is what just happened. Football coaches, for the most part, know football drills, so they were not very good at coming up with other ways to train in the off season other than lifting and running. If I over generalized by saying everyone else that was not my intent.

    Just two years ago you could not use a football in the "off season," now you able to use a football to practice routes, qb training, db drills, etc....

    And that post there speaks volumes and is what I was talking about.

    I'm done in this thread. Point proven.

    I love the Birds and will always be a Highlands fan, but today Collins was the better team and deserve the respect they earned. In the end, todays game is all that matters, they made their place in the record books and justifiably so by playing an awesome game. Just my two cents worth.

    Not the message to send in my opinion.

    But, so be it.

    Right now it feels like the night Kentucky played Duke 94' or the Bengals vs. 49'rs in 89'.

    Congrats to Highlands, and especially the Highlands seniors, for an exciting season. It didn't end the way the Highlands players, coaches and fans wanted, but there is a lot to be proud of now that it's all said and done. The highlight of the football season for me was getting to watch Highlands play live on national TV here in Raleigh!

    Win or lose, Highlands fans love their players and the great coaches who lead them.

    Go 'Birds!
    Well said and the right message to send.

    The play-calling at the end of the game would be talked about in Shelby County for a LONG time had they not won.

    I think you can watch it online. Go to khsaa.org and hit the streaming link on there. You should be able to pull up the game broadcast and watch. It is is worth watching, especially the second half.

    That is one of those games I don't think the cold would bother anyone in the stands. Like the freezer bowl, just too good of a game to think about the cold. Wish I was there. If it were a college game it would become an instant classic in ESPN.
