    I thought so. Like I said earlier, the officials had no impact other than the game ran a little longer in time. Extra sales at the concession stand,right!

    I'd say thats about right. JC's advantage is he can run with power between the tackles or flash the wheels and get outside. Throw in his size and strength and thats a pretty formidable package. Oh BTW it doesn't hurt that he has a great line in front of him, and he is the first one to tell you that.

    Does he have a chance to play D1-AA?

    As for Dixie coaching....maybe Spritz should let the boys on the field call some of the plays.... At least they wouldn't call the same plays over and over! Especially when you see it isn't working! Keep your heads up boys...that loss was as much on the coaching staff as anyone!

    I agree, The coaches didn't miss tackles or blow coverage they may not have been at their best especially in the 2nd half, but I am pretty sure they weren't the ones blowing assignments.


    With that said it is time to get back to work and move on for both players and coaches there is still a long season a head.

    I read on here a post by SM saying his sons played for Tom and he would send them back. I will say this about Highlands talent pool compared to Dixie's. If Dixie's starting quarterback were out I think they would struggle to score at all let alone have a lead at Half against a quality opponent (If you would call Dixie that, they haven't been lately). Good luck to the Birds the rest of the way.

    Quick question what is their schedule like the rest of the way I know asking a Highlands fan this is stupid but can they win out?

    CovCath, Hopkinsville, Scott, LexCath, Madison Central and Louisville Central. I think we can win out if we stay focused and play our best games. Hoptown and Scott are at home, which means we'll play several decent opponents on the road.

    I am not absolving the boys but I do think that sooner (as opposed to later) someone has to hold the coaches accountable too. The team is not sending in the plays, I feel sure that it is the coaches. I agree that the boys didn't play well but again at some point you have to wonder why the ball wasn't put up in the air or some different plays weren't used. How many times can they run the ball up the middle before everyone in stands knows what is coming?????

    It worked for Highlands as they ran QB over Right or left end, or RB over Right or left end until the Cows came home. Basically as I said the coaches were not great, but execution makes coaching look good. IF they block like they are suppose to then the play works. Much like if they tackle like they are suppose to then It doesn't work for Highlands.

    I have read much about the Adjustments Highlands made and the 2 major ones were, Cecil in the Ball game (That kid is a player and makes Highlands have 3 threats to run the ball in the Backfield) and the onside kick. Those 2 adjustments made a 7 point game a 23 point game and then it was over.

    I just get a kick out of this every week. It seems as though our "talent pool" that every one keeps mentioning has gotten smaller(in physical size) over the last several years. We all know what the line looked like for Jared and Gino, but since Gino things have been much smaller on the O line. I say I get a kick out of this because whether you look at the size of the goal line D for Dixie, or the size of the Trotwood lines...our lines are just handling whatever comes their way. I have to give major props to these guys, players and coaches. It just goes to show you that size is only part of the equation, technique is what these boys are using as the major advantage and just blowing people off the ball.

    Well done players, coaches, everyone!
