Highland Football Players Concerned Strike Will Affect Scholarships

Tuesday was day four of the Highland teacher’s strike. The high school football team is getting antsy as games are canceled and the futures of players are affected. Highland High School’s varsity squad is still practicing despite the walkout, but there are no games scheduled. That makes it difficult for players to get recruited by a college team. The strike also affects the team as a whole, because Highland was ranked second in the state last year, but every game they miss is like a loss.
