Defending 5A champion Pulaski County tops list to challenge Highlands

Contributed Photo. The Pulaski County Maroons won their first-ever football state championship last December. The last step in goals that Head Coach John Hines set out to accomplish when he became head coach in 1999 is becoming a dynasty. Highlands has been that for a while winning its 23rd crown a day later. The defending Class 4A and 5A state championships could meet Nov. 27 in Fort Thomas for the right to return to Bowling Green in the 5A state semifinals. 
The sign has been up in their weight room since John Hines became head coach in 1999.

It specifically reads, "from NOBODY to UPSTART, from UPSTART to DISTRICT CONTENDER, from CONTENDER to DISTRICT CHAMPION, from DISTRICT to REGIONAL CHAMPION, from REGIONAL to STATE CHAMPION, from STATE CHAMPION to DYNASTY." A sticker is placed next to right of all but the last step in the Pulaski County Maroons football team's weight room.
