Highlanders strive to stay focused on task at hand


The last time that Hancock County came to Roan Mountain, it left with a 14-6 victory in 2011. Two years later, the Indians will likely leave with a major spanking to the state’s No. 2-ranked football team in Class 1-A.

Cloudland won’t have revenge on its minds against the winless Indians tonight at John Orr Field. Instead, the Highlanders will be happy to run their season record to 9-0 and hopefully secure a home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

“Winning would give us a chance to play for the conference championship and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs,” said CHS head coach Brock Pittman. “That’s important because of the weather factors. Teams aren’t used to the type of cold we experience up here. I believe that could work in our favor. It was 20-some degrees today in practice with the wind blowing. It’s hard for teams to play in that type of environment who are not accustomed to it.”
