Highland Baptist Bears

2017 Record: 3-7

How It Happened: While some teams bellow in the frustration of losing close games, Highland Baptist struggled to find games that were decided in the fourth quarter. Six of Highland’s ten games were decided by 20-or-more points, the Bears going 1-5 in those meetings.

It’s the post Brontre Griffin era at Highland Baptist. The all-state back once rushed for more than 3,000 yards in a season. Now in Scottie William’s second year the Bears must move on, and will do so with a new offensive attack. After a few seasons in the spread, Williams will take Highland back to the option, leaning heavily on the athleticism of sophomore quarterback Myles Liggans and senior tailback Cameron Decuir to fill the void.
