The Highlands football program continues to be tied with Louisville Trinity for most state championship at 21. By winning its fifth consecutive state title, the Birds tie a state record set by Boyle County from 1999-2003. The championship was the 12th for head coach Dale Mueller since he took over at Highlands in 1994.
The Bluebirds set state records most points (849), touchdowns (119) and total offensive yards (7,517) in a season, averaging 56.6 points per game. Conversely, the stingy defense led surrendered just 12.7 points per contest and recorded four shutouts.
