Anyone Else Excited About Football?
With this weekend's win over Boyle County it reminded me of how extremely excited I am about this year's high school football season. I wanted to hit a couple highlights of what I look forward to this year for Highlands Football:
1. Patrick Towles as the future at UK quarterback - being a UK alum and a huge fan it will be fun to watch a future UK star. I wasn't a Fort Thomas resident when Jared was the starting QB for the Bluebirds but I am sure it was fun. I saw a couple games last year and Patrick was exciting to watch.
2. My wife's first Highland's football experience - somehow we have lived here seven years and she has yet to go to a Highlands game. I am not sure how that happened but I refuse to let another season go by without her experiencing the fun.
3. How high the team can climb on national rankings - Highlands has started the season with a MaxPrep preseason ranking of 29. With the amount of future Division I talent on this team and the drop to 4A stringing wins together should drive them up the rankings with a possible Top 10 finish again.
4. Big match up with Elder later this year - October 21st is the big match-up at the Pit. If you get a chance to go watch - the Pit is truly a great place to watch a high school football game.
Jody Demling of the Courier Journal wrote a great story on the duo if you are interested in more.
