If Highlands ultimate goal is getting back to the title game, or even beating CovCath, it looks like officially releasing the schedule has very little to do with it.

I just don’t know why anytime I ask a simple question the haters come out of the woodwork to make excuses.
Thx for clearing this up BB99 and easing my fears.

The people that disagree with most of what you say aren't haters, they simply disagree with you in most of this thread. We also aren't hiding in the woodwork, but rather waiting to defend against the next ridiculous, and sometimes flat wrong, claim that is made.
Lastly, his post did nothing to confirm the bowl game was still on and that they aren't dropping out to play Newport. It didn't even reference it.

I'm not saying Highlands was necessarily looking for a 2020 game, because I have no idea, but there are inquiries out there for 2020 games still.

However, according to BB99 who seems to be in the know stated the following..
“2020 season games are the same as 2019 season games just flipping home/away with the exception of the Bowl game at Corbin. It will be at Corbin with different opponent decided by the host.“
This tells me that Highlands will honor their commitment to play in Bowl Game and Newport is still looking for someone to play not named Highlands.

What you are doing is defending the issues and problems of the current state of the Football program at Highlands.
We clearly disagree on where this program has been and where it should be. Obviously mediocrity is something that many folks involved in the program are just ok with and many have come to accept it and move on.
I reserve my right and opinion to speak out against what I believe is the death of this program. Whether it be disagreeing with philosophies or simply speaking the the truth with passion without being fearful of being reprimanded or penalized. I will question those in charge until changes with results have been made.
The “we” that are on the defense of this debate is comical compared to the mass numbers that agree with me despite what you or others may think.
No way will anyone convince me or change my mind at this point in time. If I upset folks because of how direct and candid I am then that’s too bad.
Everyone from the bottom to the top need to put their big boy pants on and fix the problem and quit making excuses and blaming everyone else but themselves or just step aside and let someone else fix it.
At the end of the day the kids are losing out on opportunities that they will never know of or experience. That is on the administration and anyone that defends that is part of the problem.

I also agree with you having the right to your opinion and to speak on it. That is what makes this country and this message board great! You have the right to speak your opinion, but with that the people that disagree with you can also speak their mind.
"We" is more than one person. Even if you have 100k people following you it doesn't make the group that disagrees with some of your posts not "we".
What I stated "we" are waiting to defend against is any downright incorrect information that has been spread throughout the thread, and there has been plenty.
I agree that Highlands has a very proud tradition! I would argue that that tradition is still very strong. Highlands will come back, and it is very likely that there are some changes that need to be made in order to do that. As others have said, that likely starts with allowing tuition students into the district again. It doesn't mean there hasn't been some talent there the last few years, but it can only help matters to allow even more kids into the school.
