Shortly after, senior running back, Chase Mansmann found his way into the end zone.

“Friday night was a tough loss for us. It was our final chance to get into the playoffs, which means our season is coming to an end, but I’m already looking forward to next year,” said HHS Head Coach Greg Baker

At halftime, Highland Home was down 27-7 and couldn’t make their way back into the end zone.

“We might have lost last Friday’s game and we aren’t going to the playoffs, but we need come out with a victory this Friday night against Prattville Christian to end the season with a win,” sophomore wide receiver Noah Phillips said.

Highland Home is 3-7 in the season and will play their final game this Friday night against Prattville Christian Academy.

“Prattville Christian is a 3A school. They are a good team, but they are beatable. The boys are going to have to play to the ability I know they can to come out with a win,” said Baker.

“We’re looking forward to finishing out strong for these seniors Friday night. Sending them out with what the deserve, a victory,” said coach Will Pouncey.
