They have worked hard since May of this year and put up more wins than the last 2 seasons combined. With a very young team they are building something great for seasons to come!”

LINK staff nominee. The Bluebirds have won five straight games after starting the season, 0-2. Not only has Highlands won, the team has done it by lighting up the scoreboard, putting up more than 50 points in their last three games. Last week, Highlands brought down Conner, 55-0.

LINK staff pick. The Pandas had a strong showing in a Chicago-based tournament over the weekend, claiming victory in four of five games. The Pandas are now 23-4 on the season after those wins, which included toppling Louisville powerhouse Assumption.
