Neighbor Vs. Neighbor
Although the schools are just 3.9 miles away from each other, Highland Park and Hillcrest have not met on the gridiron since 1999.
That will change in a few hours when the Scots (11-0) welcome the Panthers (8-2) to Highlander Stadium for a Class 4A Division II playoff game. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
The Scots, coming off a 49-7 whipping of Frisco Centennial, have won 62 straight home games. Meanwhile, the Panthers had to rally in the fourth quarter last week for a 15-14 victory over Seagoville. Highland Park owns a 13-1 lead in the all-time series with Hillcrest.
The winner of tonight’s game moves on to play the Mesquite Poteet-Whitehouse winner next week.
If the Scots win, head coach Randy Allen said they will play at 7 p.m. one week from Saturday. He did not divulge where that game would be, which leads me to believe it’s probably somewhere pretty cool. Perhaps Jerry World? We’ll see.

woohoo go scotties
Seems like HP and Hillcrest ought to play each other more often. What gives? It makes more sense than Everman or Waxahachie and would be a good rivalry.
