Fort Thomas Highlands Football, Kentucky (Images of Sports Series)

by Bill Thomas




Few high school football programs can match the success of Highlands. Having captured 17 state championships since 1960, the school ranks fifth in total wins among all high schools in the United States. The program has produced many outstanding college and professional players, including Jared Lorenzen of the New York Giants and Rob Smith of the Kansas City Chiefs. Legendary coach Homer Rice led Highlands to its first state championships in 1960 and 1961 before going on to coach Rice University and the Cincinnati Bengals. Fort Thomas Highlands Football highlights the program through the 2007 championship season and pays tribute to the teams and players since 1915.
