The Highlands varsity football team sets up a play.

     On Friday, October 9, the Highlands High School varsity football team played Boone County High School. The Birds crushed their opponent, ending the game with a score of 43-0, Highlands. 

     The Birds started off strong with two touchdowns in the first quarter, one by sophomore Charlie Noon and one by senior Jason Noe. 

     The Birds kept that momentum throughout the game, scoring two more touchdowns in both the second and third quarters. In the second quarter, seniors Jake Fahlbusch and Patrick Clukey each scored one touchdown. In the third quarter, juniors Jake Welch and Isaac Surrey scored one touchdown each as well. 

     Senior Jake Arthur feels that the game last night went very well and said, “I feel that [the] last game and the Conner game have been very beneficial. We’ve played with excitement and the chemistry of the offense is clicking. As for our future games, the only thing that can stop us is ourselves.”

     The Birds’ next home game will be the Homecoming game on October 23  at 7:00 P.M..
