    Just look at S.Oldham games by both teams, FC will be ready to play.

    LEATHERNECK, nice post on the seniors and the dedication they bring day in and day out.

    Lamnuts 54, please show me the attitude you speak of from the Highlands faithful. No one has knocked this team or been outspoken about the matchup. HHS has often been the bad guy on these posts and for the most part, as I see it, alot of the negative posts and the disrespect for others often comes from people who support other teams or multitude of teams. Furthermore, many posts come from those who have seen one or the other play and make their own opinions.
    Trust me in the fact that come playoff time, Highlands will take no team lightly.

    All you have to do is read posts from the "faithful". I respect your program but reality is a team cannot just turn it on and off. I would be shocked if HHS takes FC lightly because true football fans that have seen BOTH teams as I have know that this might turn out to be the best game in the State this week.

    I'm afraid you're just reading into things, what you wish to be there.

    If you had been at the HHS/ South Oldham game you would understand a little better what actually happened. The game was played in a blinding rainstorm. It was freezing cold, water everywhere and biting wind. Under those conditions, almost anything can happen. I would advise not using that game as your bellweather for this week's match-up.

    If you're going to base the outcome of the Highlands/FC game on the outcome of another, be my guest...I think you'll be disappointed.

    No one has said FC wont be ready. They better be, or they'll go home embarrassed.

    Yeah you must be right. We haven't had any games in poor weather. I do read between the lines I do it for a living. I did not state that I went to THAT game. Oh and by the way the posters stated that the S.Oldham game did not matter anyway. Have you seen FC play or are your feelings just out of loyalty?

    However, those that don't play much at all are just as valuable and important to the team as those that do in my opinion. Maybe even more valuable.

    You don't have to be a starter or even get on the field to be a leader of a team. Leaders in my opinion are the ones that set the example; that the others look to when times are tough; they are the ones that are the most respected by the coaches, fans and other players.

    Its easy to play football at Highlands when you are the star athlete, when you start as an underclassman. But the real people that I respect a lot are the seniors that have busted their tails for 4 years but get little or no playing time; yet they hang in there. That's real leadership to me. Not the jumping up and down before the game; not the "cheerleading" after a big hit or big run. Its the sheer will and dedication that is needed to make it through long days of triple sessions; the sacrifices on Saturday mornings; the gassers and the lost job opportunities knowing along that you'll not probably see the field on Friday night. To me its these kids are the ones that show real leadership.

    Sure they'd like to play more, their egos get bruised when some underclassman takes their spot. But rather than quit or cause problems, they suck it up and continue to come to practice and try to the best of their abilities. These are the kids that lead by example, that personify the "no I in team"; and that want desperately for the team to win state and if the coach thinks the chances of that happening are better with the underclassmen starting in front of them, they are able to put their disappointment aside to best support the team.

    These are the kids that provide the leadership needed on a young team. When the underclassmen get tired, they need only look at that senior who's at practice busting his tail knowing that he'll be lucky to get into the game on Friday night to find their inspiration to run that last gasser, to look at the scouting report one more time before going to sleep.

    We do have a fair number of seniors that unfortunately for them were not blessed with the athletic talent that the good Lord gave some of the underclassmen; but they were given the qualities of persistance, dedication, committment and loyalty to team that make them the best of leaders in my eyes and will make them leaders throughout their lives. And for that, I say thank you.
    Nice Post LN but I beg to differ. Those boys that put in the 4 years like you say deserve more. HHS doesn't win games 14-7. Many are blowouts and the coaches could work them in more without dangering the outcome. Don't think for one minute that any reward, words said, etc. mean more than PT.

My question is how do you overlook a District game when those games decide whether you stay home for the playoffs or have to travel. Besides the games that Highlands lost is the caliber of the rest of their schedule any different than other teams? Their 3 District games did not prepare them for the playoffs.
    Please tell me you don't think that your schedule prepared you for the playoffs. Franklin Co. has one win that can be considered a good win and that's just because Harrison Co. stayed with CCH last week. Not sure how that prepares you for the playoffs but wins over Dixie, Madison Central, Southwestern and CCH does not.

    I think what your problem is, is that no one is disputing that EXCEPT people that are NOT HHS supporters.
