Highlands Blasts Christian Co. 50-0 - Wins State Record 20th State Title
The heading says it all. Highlands executed its game plan to perfection. To view the video replay, go to Highlands-bluebirds.com. The win gave Highlands their school best, 4th state championship in a row. The replay should be available to watch around 8:30 tonight.
Game MVP goes to Patrick Towles, junior QB. They held Christian Co. 5A player of the year RB Ryan "Bubba" Tandy to a net of 39 yards on 13 carries.
Barring Towles entering his name in the NFL draft, he will lead the team next year - and has undoubtedly put his name atop the list for Mr. Kentucky Football. They have plenty to look forward to. Both Freshman and JV teams went undefeated and will step up to fill the void of departing seniors this year.
Also on tap for next year, Highlands will be leaving 5A, departing as the only 5A champ since the realignment 4 years ago. The Birds will be joining the more competitive 4A next year, with the likes of Boyle Co, Bell Co, Lexington Catholic, and Cov Cath.
They open with 4A champ, Boyle Co. and also have a matchup with Elder next year.
Congrats to the Birds.
Oh yeah, NCC won too.
