Should Highlands request to play up in 5A for the 2019-2022 Football Seasons?

Page 5 of I am a firm No on this. The Highlands Football Program needs to get back on its feet. Moving up into a loaded 5A would be very dangerous for Highlands ... 153 comments | 9749 Views | Go to page 1 →

    This is a good point. They won’t win it all in 5A or 4A so in that aspect I guess it doesn’t matter what classification they play in or who the coach is.

    The thing that makes no sense here is the talk that playing in 5A or 4A has some sort of effect on Weinrich keeping his job. Not real sure where exactly that is coming from or how it is being perceived.

    Many close to the program have said it more than once, the results are an issue, but the biggest issue(s) have to do with how the "little" things were being done or in some cases not done at all.

    Valid. In that regard it doesn’t matter what class they play in.

    I supported them keeping him on and I'd like to see them play up in 5A.

    If they stay in 5A they have a 0% chance of winning a state championship in the cycle. So the real question is what is important for the next 4 years.

    Are you suing that CovCath is unbeatable?

    Has nothing to do with Cov Cath. I dont see them having anywhere close the talent they need to beat about 6 to 8 of the other teams that may be in 5A, not including Cov Cath.

    There is a reason the KHSAA divides schools into class based on the number of male students in a school. Schools with a larger male population have a statistical number advantage over smaller schools.

    So its impressive when a smaller school in class has success beating larger schools (higher class) around the state.

    There is also the law of averages where sustaining this success is difficult.

    I have also seen a shift in the way the larger schools have conditioned and prepared with better coaching that have leveled the playing field. You can visually see this in guys on the OL/DL. There a lot more big athletic guys in football shape now than I would see in years past.

    What has also affected HHS is the coaching change since Dale left. This is BW's first Head coaching position where he is fully in charge and he is taking over a program after years of above average results.

    If they play in 5A I would expect continued difficulties and a coaching change in the near future. If they play in 4A where there student male population is a fit based on the KHSAA class then I would expect the coach and team would have a higher probability of success.

    This should not be about the coach or the egos of "we play up". It should be about the players and to give them the best chance to succeed against schools their same size. I would like to see them play in 4A unless the HHS Admin sees an economic reason to move to 5A.

    Maybe if Highlands could go back and schedule Newport, Bellevue, Dayton etc. like the good ol’ days, things could turn around in the Fort.

    Not that it matters, but what would the 4A district look like if Highlands were told they had to play in 4A?

    5A if they were allowed to play up?

    LOL. The old Cakeeaters need to grow up a bit, your Schwinn bycycles and Burr haircuts are outdated before Mueller was there. How many state rings did they win with Burr haircuts before Dale was there? Not many.
