Editor’s Note: This is a series of stories about the history of Highlands football leading up to the 100th season.
One really has to go back in time to imagine the beginning of this great tradition.
That time came before the trophies and banners. It came before the joyful trips to Louisville, Lexington, Richmond and Bowling Green. It even came before the Cake Eating. In fact, it came two years before the Kentucky High School Association football playoffs began.
