 2016 Preview 

       Highland Home finished the 2015 season with a disappointing 3-7 record. Last year Highland Home just missed making the playoffs with a fifth place finish in Class 2A region three with a 3-4 region record.

       The Flying Squadron lost as many games as in any season since 2009. The defense allowed a team record 430 points last season.

       Highland Home struggled on the defensive side of the football last year. The defense found little success in stopping opposing offenses as they gave up an average of 43.0 points a game.

       Since 2010, Highland Home has gone a combined 31-32. Their 49.0% winning percentage ranks 20th in Class 1A over the past six seasons.

       Over the past 25 seasons, Highland Home has managed to compile a record of 147-129. Their 53.0% winning percentage ranks 19th in Class 1A and 158th in the AHSAA.

       The Flying Squadron are led by head coach Gregg Baker who is entering his second season at the helm. His team finished with a 3-7 record in his first season at Highland Home. The Flying Squadron have yet to reach the playoffs under his direction. They have not won a region crown with Coach Baker.

       Coach Baker's overall record as a head football coach in five season stands at 11-38 (22.4%).

       The Highland Home Flying Squadron will play in Class 1A region three during the 2016 season. The Flying Squadron may find the schedule slightly easier this season with the move down in classification from Class 2A to 1A. They will compete in region three this year.

       The Flying Squadron will be in the mix for one of the last two playoff spots in region three this season. Highland Home missed the playoffs the past couple of seasons but hope to return to the post season this year.

       The Flying Squadron open the 2016 season on the road against non-region opponent Luverne on Friday, August 26 at Glenn Daniel Stadium. Last year the Luverne Tigers finished with an overall record of 6-5 and in third place in Class 2A region three. The Tigers lost in the first round of the Class 2A playoffs to Mobile Christian by a score of 43-19.

       Highland Home and Luverne have met a total of 83 times on the football field. The Flying Squadron have a 15-65-3 record against the Tigers. They last met in 2015 with Luverne winning by a score of 53-18.
