Senior defensive back/wide receiver Dominic Robinson said a huge focus for the Blue and White this week is confidence.
"The thing that impresses me most with Highlands Football is how hard their players play," Borchers said. "They are also very athletic and quick, but I love how they fly around defensively and get 8-9 guys to the ball on every play. They are always very sound defensively and will create chaos if you don’t communicate up front. They do a great job of filling downhill and their safeties fill hard and fast and will remind you quickly that you better account for them in your run game."
The Bluebirds have rushed for 953 yards and passed for 738 for averages of just under 159 rushing and exactly 123 passing. Highlands sophomore quarterback Charlie Noon continues to lead the Bluebirds in both with 532 yards rushing on 106 carries and five touchdowns for an average of just more than five yards per carry. Noon has also completed 48-of-82 passes for 644 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions.
"Highlands is going to be very happy with their QB over the next two and a half years," Borchers said. "He is already a game changer and will only get better. Not only can he beat you throwing the ball he is an even better runner that is very elusive and is tough to keep in the pocket. The receivers run great routes and do a tremendous job of finding the open window to settle down. The coaching staff has done a great job of adapting their offense to their players and they do a great job of keeping the defense off-balance."
